After almost a year of meeting, organizing, fundraising and
re-organizing, we finally received our Charter, were initiated, and had
our officers installed Tuesday, April 27, 2004. It was an honor to have
then Department of Maryland Auxiliary President Sandra Blum on
hand to perform the rituals. It took a lot of hard work, commitment and
time on everyone’s part to make this happen.
I know I speak for all of our members, when I say we feel privileged to
be able to be part of an organization whose mission is so honorable. We
look forward to serving Marines and their families, our community and
supporting our detachment’s efforts.
As the wife of a retired Marine, I understand first hand the hardships
and sacrifices Marines and their families experience. One of my
personal goals for our new Auxiliary Unit is to support the
families of active duty Marines who are currently deployed overseas or
have recently returned. We will also be taking part in many
existing Marine Corps League and Marine Corps League Auxiliary
programs, such as the Marines Helping Marines Program and Operation
Right now, we have a small group, but a very strong one. Each of the
amazing women in our unit bring with them individual talents, abilities
and interests that will help the SSgt Karl G. Taylor, Sr. Unit grow and
thrive. This is an exciting time for our unit...one in which we will be
defining ourselves as a unit and finding focus.
If you are interested in joining us, we would love to have you! Please
feel free to e-mail me with any questions you may have.
