Marine Parent and Volunteer
Facebook Groups Volunteer,
Kelly started volunteering as a Platoon Parent in August 2017, in SOI ITB West shortly after her Marine left for SOI. As a Platoon Parent she hoped to welcome, encourage, and embrace recruit families on their journey. She is now The Group Guide for the MOS group.
Kelly says she may not be Supermom, but is a full- time woman: juggling family, work, church activities, and volunteering. Kelly is married to Dave and they have four children (3 boys, 1 girl), and two dogs, (a German Shepherd and a Chihuahua). Their Marine surprised them one day by coming home and saying, “I joined the Marines.” While caught a bit off guard their family couldn’t be more proud of his decision.
Together Kelly and Dave raised their children to always find a way to give back to the community. Kelly has a servant’s heart and has always volunteered with organizations she believes in. That is why she decided to volunteer with Marine Parents; the groups were really a lifeline for her through boot camp. Now they keep her informed on how to best support their Marine and make “no news is good news” less stressful. Kelly hopes that she can do the same for other Marine families.
