TAMPA AREA MARINE PARENTS ASSOCIATION INC
March 7, 2010

While I was in the Marines, I lost many friends, my mother passed away a month going to Fallujah in which I participated in Operation Phantom Furry. After the Marines I was going in a downward spiral with no meaning to my life. Then Juli, a TAMPA memeber and mother to a Marine brother that went to war with me tried to get me to go to TAMPA functions. At first I didnt want to do anything or be anywhere with alot of people but she got me to go. And then I met so many people who cared that I fought and shed bled for this country. I met other members like Cyd and Momma Dee who made me feel proud to be a Marine again. Because of Cyd I got to go to the Super Bowl! Momma Dee made me realize everything happens for a reason. The reason why my Marines gave their lives instead of me was for me to experiance life and the freedoms of this country and to raise my son and cherish every moment. TAMPA is here to help Marines like me that lost their path and to help those stay on the path. God bless every member of TAMPA!

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the members and their care for veterans

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind hearted human beings who knew that Marines are not getting the support they need.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

it could save so many Marines who are faceing the same challenges as me. Marines who gave up so much and are heading towards destruction. TAMPA cant save them all with what they got but there trying and not giving up.

Ways to make it better...

this organization had more funding and support from our Government so they can help our troops in harms ways.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

support and funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

TAMPA needs more publicity so that our troops know that there is help out there besides the VA and the VA all ready haves their hands full.
