We asked Erendira to share her personal experience as a volunteer:
Why did you decide to volunteer with Marine Parents?

What do you find most rewarding about volunteering with MarineParents?
"Being able to help is so rewarding!"
What would you say to someone who is interested in volunteering?
"Just do it! Many times when they made the post calling for volunteers I wanted to say I want to but I was hesitant until I decided to go for it. Be brave! You won't regret it! Marine Parents truly is the place to connect and share."

This is an outstanding accomplishment! Welcome to the MarineParents Volunteer family!
Christen joined MarineParents after her Marine completed Recruit Training. She wanted to be part of MarineParents because of all the support she received while her son was in recruit training and also spent time in BMP & STC. She leaned on the daily posts in the groups as her son journeyed through his boot camp experience. Christen wanted to volunteer so she can support other recruit families. She loves being a Marine MoM and part of MarineParents.
