TAMPA AREA MARINE PARENTS ASSOCIATION INC
March 5, 2010

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.
