Take comfort in KNOWING that we are the best military force in
leaders are exceptional
folks are the finest

Our role in all this is seemingly
simple, but not so. We have to stay put and watch it unfold; so,
when they call, and they will, put on that brave facade and let
them know how much they are loved, how proud we are of them, and
express our confidence in their abilities and those of the

I joined the Marine Mom group two
years after my Marine reservist son’s return from Iraq. From the
first day I met with them I knew I would be OK from here on out
as I finally had some friends who knew exactly how I felt having
a son in the Marines. How I wished this group was formed before
he went to Iraq. Everyone in the group, especially our leader,
Marine Mom Beverly Kay, was so supportive. They listened to my
fears, joys, insecurities, and pride.
Throughout my time with this group I have participated in
numerous fundraising events, box packing parties to send our
troops snacks and hygiene supplies, volunteer time at the VA
Hospital bingo night, the Osprey Memorial Service, and have
enjoyed lots of friendly conversation at the group luncheons.
Never again will I have to be fearful of being alone and not
having any friends or family around to support me if my son has
to go back to Iraq. Never again will I have to face the anxiety
alone for I know this strong caring group of women have my back
and will always be there for me whenever I will need them.
I encourage you to join this wonderful group of TAMMs, Tucson
Area Marine Moms!
