a volunteer at MarineParents.com. Our volunteers work around the United States in a variety of capacities. Please give a shout out of thanks to one of our Official Marine Parents Facebook Group volunteers!
Valentine has been a Marine Parents volunteer since March 2016, as a Platoon Parent. She is currently Group Leader with Mike Company, San Diego and hopes to welcome, encourage, and embrace recruit families on their journey.
Valentine is from southern California, and has been happily married for over 20 years. She is a proud stay at home mother of five who enjoys volunteering for their school functions. Valentine spent 10 years providing home care for her grandmother who suffered from Alzheimer's.
Valentine discovered Marine Parents while her eldest son was in the poolee program, and immediately started encouraging other recruit families to visit the website and to join the groups. Valentine’s positive experience with Marine Parents inspired her to become a platoon parent volunteer. She hopes to be able to pay forward the kindness, comfort, and help that she has received throughout her journey as a Marine mom.
