T.A.M.P.A. supported my husband while he was recovering from literally "blinding" wounds as a Marine in Iraq. Cyd even overnighted his favorited Cuban food to him while he was in the hospital. T.A.M.P.A. educates, entertains and loves everyone they seek out to help! 5 years after my husband was wounded we are proud to be a part of T.A.M.P.A. and support them however we can.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could do a lot more of what it always does for a lot more people. You need money to educate and build support for families and troops. T.A.M.P.A. will use the $ to help these warriors and their families.

My son was blinded in Iraq in August of 2004 and T.A.M.P.A was a new group at that time. The parents of the T.A.M.P.A group were there for me every step of the way, Cyd, the president even overnighting Mike's favorite cuban food from his favorite restaurant in Tampa to all of us! T.A.M.P.A is a very cohesive group that works together to provide support for the Marines and their family.

I first heard about T.A.M.P.A. when we met Cyd at the Veteran's Memorial Park. Her energy and dedication to Marines and their families is impressive. However, she is also willing to do anything to promote other support group organizations and assist ALL military branches. Our group participated in the R4F that they sponsored. The level of preparedness and professionalism was remarkable. The effort this organization expends toward the cause of military support is inspiring, I feel honored to be included in this circle of friends.

I joined this organization after my son joined the Marines. I had no idea what this new thing "The Marines" was about. The people in the group were helpful in sharing their knowledge and expeiences to put my mind at ease. When my son was deployed to Afghanistan all I had to do was ask and they were there to talk or cry with me. When he was hurt in an IED blast the first person I thought to call was a member of TAMPA. Again they were there for me. This is truly a support system for service family members. My son has left the Marines, but I can never leave this group or the people who have become my friends. I joined for personal reasons, but I stay to now give back to other members and to our troops.

I have been a Marine mom now for 10 months. I have found such support from this organazation. Of course with the war going on in Afghanistan and what is happening is our world today, I am proud that my son chose to serve his country, but I feel as though I have been on an emotional roller coaster...the members and ladies heading up Tampa Area Marine Parents have been a God sent. Not only have they provided much needed support emotionally, they do so much for the families and Marines. I went to a meeting were we helped pack care packages..I am still learning about all the different areas I can help and be a part in letting our troops know how so very much they are supported here at home. I'm not much of a writer, but wanted to say something in suport of this wonderful group and the people that are a part of it.

The Great!
