TAMPA AREA MARINE PARENTS ASSOCIATION INC
March 4, 2010

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.
