Group Guide Golf Company (San Diego)


Marine Parent and Volunteer

Recruit Parents Facebook Groups Volunteer,

Kristi is a volunteer Group Guide in Golf Company, San Diego. She had been in search of volunteer opportunities outside of her full-time position at a Texas technology company, and when her son joined the Marines, she felt this was a great opportunity to give back.

Kristi grew up in a small farm community in Kansas, moved to Texas for college, and ended up staying; both states feel like home to her. She is a single mom of two sons: her oldest plays baseball for the University of Texas in Tyler, the younger son is her Marine. Although he had dreamed as a teenager about becoming a Marine, mom was concerned and hesitant. Time passed, her son graduated high school, lived on his own, worked and tried out college. She thought maybe the urge to serve had passed. She'll never forget the moment she received a call from him, "Mom, we need to talk." There was no question, he was becoming a Marine!

From that moment, Kristi has embraced the Marine Mom title and the rollercoaster that goes with it. It is her hope that she can bring education and comfort to new recruit parents, welcoming them into their new, larger family.
