Marine Parent and Volunteer
Recruit Parents Facebook Groups Volunteer,
As a Platoon Parent for Delta Company, Julie is eager to help parents as they transition alongside their sons through the journey of boot camp.
Julie lives in Carson City, Nevada with her husband of 26 years Rod, two dogs and a cat. She works for the State of Nevada and Rod is a teacher. The couple has two sons: Dalton, a student at the University of Nevada, Reno, and Jarod, their Marine.
Jarod has wanted to be a Marine since the age of 9. On October 20, 2017, Jarod fulfilled his dream by graduating from Delta Company at MCRD-San Diego. Jarod is eager to get on to his advanced training and be assigned to his Permanent Duty Station.
Julie describes the Facebook groups offered through MarineParents.com as her "lifeline" while her son was in boot camp. "There is so much valuable information and emotional support offered to parents, and I want to be a part of helping others the way I was helped," she said.
