Platoon Parent Delta Company (San Diego)
Marine Parent and Volunteer
Recruit Parents Facebook Groups Volunteer,
Ireene will be the volunteer Platoon Parent during the recruit Delta Journey. She hopes to put parent's mind at ease during boot camp and offer her guidance, wisdom and support.
She was born and raised in San Jose, CA and then moved to Bend, OR., 6 years ago. She has been married for 23 years and has 1 girl, 3 boys, 1 dog, and 1 cat. There is never a dull moment in the house!
Her Marine journey started 2/2016 when her eldest son had enlisted. He was to leave 5/2017. Of course, nothing ever goes as planned. Over Thanksgiving weekend, her son received a call that he could start boot camp next week. He left for boot camp 12/5/16. Needless to say it was a different Christmas. Fast forward, her son became a Marine 3/3/17 and is currently still in training.
She looks forward to getting to know her platoon as well as the many volunteers here.
She had chosen to volunteer because it was her way of going through this journey with her Marine. He is doing all that he can do and she thought the same as well.
"We can do no great things - Only small things with great love." Together we can do this.
