, El Cajon, CA ID #4770
Kelly is a stay at home wife & mom to two children.She is also a very proud daughter of a Retired USMC Vietnam Veteran. Her father's deep love and devotion to God, Country, and of course, the Marine Corps, had an enormously large and lasting impact on how he raised his "little girl" to be.Kelly's dad taught her the importance of always - ALWAYS - showing gratitude to our Service men and women and all Vets alike - for you never know which one might have never been thanked, just the way he and so many of his fellow Vietnam veterans never were. After the father returned from Vietnam, he lived the rest of his life without ever receiving a single thank you - except from Kelly!
Kelly continues to teach her Father's lessons to herown kids, stating that we can never show enough appreciation for our service men and women and vets alike.
Kelly writes to MarineParents: "It would be an honor and a privilege to hold a Care Package Drive, and I personally will do everything in my power to make as loud of a noise as I can in hopes that this drive will be a great success for our Troops!"
