VITPP Fox Company (SD) in training ph1
Marine Parent and Volunteer
Recruit Parents Facebook Groups Volunteer,
Samantha is a new volunteer as of Oct. 2017. She is serving as a Volunteer in Training, Platoon Parent for Fox Company, San Diego.
She has a Master’s Degree in Aerospace Administration and Logistics and has a big love for airplanes! She enjoys going to church with her family and staying busy with running, CrossFit, kayaking, camping, fishing and just about anything else you can do outdoors!
Samantha is married to a newly retired, United States Air Force Veteran, and has one son, (their new recruit). She is a United States Air Force Veteran herself and comes from a family with a rich military heritage. Samantha’s Mother, her Grandfather, her Aunt, and Uncle are all Air Force Veterans. Her Great-Grandfather was Killed in Action (KIA) at the Battle of the Bulge in WWII. Her younger cousin recently graduated from MCRD SD and is a new Marine!
Samantha and her family have a love for their Country, putting Service Before Self, and Commitment to helping others. That love has carried over into Samantha’s personal life and has given her a passion for volunteering and serving other families, Service Men and Women, Veterans, and their loved ones. In the short time that Samantha has been a part of the MarineParents family she has witnessed some of the most wonderful acts of kindness, much needed words of wisdom, and has received support beyond all expectation. She would like to share with others what she has so graciously been given in her short tenure here: tons of information, helping hands, warm smiles, virtual hugs, new friendships, outstanding support, and lots of laughter!
