Joan volunteers as a Group Leader for Kilo Company, MCRD San Diego, where she works with her fellow Kilo Volunteers to acclimate, educate, and support the family members of the new Kilo recruits as they take the roller coaster ride that is boot camp. While some families have a long tradition of military service, many are novices and find themselves nervous of their future as Marine Corps parents. We are there to walk them, day by day through the experience.
Joan volunteers as the Coach for all of the 3rd Battalion companies at Marine Corps Recruiting Depot, San Diego. Prior to becoming Coach, Joan volunteered as a Group Leader and Group Guide for Kilo Company, MCRD San Diego. Joan is a retired elementary teacher and junior high school librarian. She lives in Princeton, Texas, near Dallas, with her husband, Tom. Joan is the proud Marine grandmother of Karter, who graduated from MCRD--San Diego in January of 2016 with Fox Company. She served as a Fox Company, Platoon Parent during his time at boot camp.
Joan helps support all of the India, Kilo, Lima, and Mike Company Volunteers in their mission to help our members’ boot camp experience be as positive as possible. "We are a family and must care for our newest members." Joan hopes to repay those who walked with her though boot camp by helping others not only survive, but enjoy this experience.
