TAMPA AREA MARINE PARENTS ASSOCIATION INC
March 12, 2010

Although I am the Executive Director and one of the original Co-Founders of the group, I too have a story to tell. When my son went into the Marine Corps in 2003 I did not have a clue what was ahead. Meeting other family and friends on a regular basis gave me a chance to learn more than I could ever have imagined. This group became our "family" and have stood beside us through thick and thin. We too are "banded" together with bonds that will last a lifetime. It is a wonderful experience to lead our members with exciting projects, new programs and to become closer with them personally each and every day. This is an awesome group that truly believes that ALL things are possible when it comes to supporting our military men and women and their families.

we could just reach more families.

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

Gaining new members without proper exposure and funding for projects and programs that we know are needed.

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