Marine Spouse and Volunteer
Corrie discovered Marine Parents when her brother joined the Corps in 2009 and, after moving to San Diego with her husband, an active-duty Marine, Corrie decided she wanted to "give back what Marine Parents had given to [her]," ultimately becoming a volunteer for the Warrior Support Team in January of this year.
Each Thursday, Corrie and numerous other volunteers serve meals to wounded and recovering warriors at Naval Medical Center San Diego. In addition to serving meals, the volunteers chat with and provide companionship to the warriors and their family members during their recovery processes. "Those Wounded Warriors and their families that I meet week to week forever change[d] me," Corrie says, "They inspire me. They give me strength. They make me so proud to be a part of this community."
