2014 Thank You to Our Volunteers!

In my mind, there are two types of volunteers. The first type are volunteers with a little v. For little v volunteers, volunteering is something they do. Itís a way to make a positive impact in the world from time to time, when the urge strikes. Thereís nothing wrong with this, at all, as a positive impact is a positive impact and every action, no matter how small, has the potential to change the world. This is the category that most volunteers fall into.

The second type are Volunteers with a big V. For big V volunteers, volunteering isnít so much something they do as a part of who they are. Itís not a hobby but a way of life. This is the category that the volunteers of the Marine Parents family fall into. And for that, I am grateful.

Iím sure that many of you are familiar with the phrase, ďBehind every great man thereís a great woman.Ē In the same vein, I firmly believe that behind every great organization, there are great supporters, and I canít think of an example that better illustrates this than the amazing volunteers we have here at Marine Parents.

None of what our organization accomplishes would be possible without the amazing volunteer support team across the country. They are the backbone of this organization and have taken a shared belief--that supporting our troops and their family members is of the utmost importance--and turned it into a reality.

April 6-12, 2014 is National Volunteer Week. We want to take this time to thank each and every volunteer who works for for their dedication to our military and their families. Their selflessness and commitment to helping our troops is truly inspiring, and this year our volunteers contributed almost 18,000 hours of service to supporting our troops.

Iíd like to ask that you take a moment to leave a note of thanks for these incredibly dedicated, compassionate and hard-working volunteers. Each one would tell me ďNo thanks are necessaryĒ but Iíd like to show each of them just how important they are to you, and how much I know you appreciate their hard work. Thereís a link in the beige box at the top right for leaving a note of thanks.

Again, to each of our volunteers, thank you for your work and dedication to the organization, our military and their families. And congratulations for a job well-done!

God Bless and Semper Fi,

Tracy Della Vecchia
Founder and Executive Director
