Hello, my name is Maureen and I'm raising funds so I can travel to Parris Island, SC to watch my son, Israel, graduate boot camp and become a Marine.
Izzy has always wanted to serve his country in the military.He follows his grandfather that served in the Army during WWII, and his two great uncles that also fought in WWII as Marines. He is proud to carry on this family tradition. My son is a thoughtful young man that is dedicated to his family, especially his beloved 90 year old grandmother. He trained very hard all summer to prepare for the grueling 13 weeks of physical, mental and emotional challenge it takes to become a US Marine. I am so proud of his hard work and dedication to obtain a very difficult goal.
I am a normal, hard-working person, but the cost to travel to SC, stay 2 nights, and return home is way beyond my means. I want desperately to be able to attend my son's graduation and any donations made will be appreciated beyond words! Besides the day I had him, the day he graduates and becomes a Marine will be the proudest day of my life .....I don't want to miss it. Thank you!
