Group Guide Hotel Company (San Diego)
Marine Parent and Volunteer
Recruit Parents Facebook Groups Volunteer,
Belenda is a proud Marine Mom from Temple, Texas who is serving as a Group Guide for Hotel Company,San Diego.
Belenda has been married to her husband, Johnny, for 25 years. They have four children: a Marine, two in college and one in high school. As if four kiddos were not enough, they also have three lovable dogs and two feisty cats to add to the mix. An important quality of this family is using their God-given gifts on their church worship team and in children's church. For four years, Belenda has also been an active volunteer with Traffick911, an organization with a mission to free youth from sex trafficking.
Belenda has a long line of family members who has served in the military. Her grandfather, husband and brother-in-law served in the Army; her father, Uncle and two cousins served in the Air Force. Although not new to military life, Belenda recognizes that just as being an Air Force daughter is as distinctive to serving as an Army wife, serving as a Marine Mom will have its own uniqueness. As she dives into this new adventure with her son, Belenda looks forward to providing encouragement and support to other recruit's families and friends.
