Marine Parent and Volunteer
Joe Densford lives in St. Mary's County in Southern Maryland on what is known as the "Western Shore". He has been active in public and community service most of his adult life, including serving as the Town Attorney for Leonardtown and County Attorney for St. Mary's County.
Joe has three children who have all followed him into public service, a daughter who works for the city of Charlotte, North Carolina and two sons currently serving in the United States Marine Corps. Joe has served on the boards of several community organizations, working actively with the outreach and providing pro bono legal advice. Joe is active with his community's Christmas in April organization, and when his oldest son left on his first deployment, Joe volunteered with the Maryland Militia, the auxiliary of the Maryland National Guard, providing legal services to activated Guardsmen.
Joe has been volunteering with Marine Parents since 2005 when his oldest son was deployed for the first time. At the time, Joe was looking for a way to support the military in general and the Marines specifically, and he's been a dedicated Marine Parents volunteer ever since. According to Joe, "Being able to show my appreciation for everything our service members and their families do for us," is what he finds most fulfilling about volunteering with Marine Parents.
