Welcome Aboard

A Message From the President

 Welcome to Houston Marine Moms.  In case you were looking for another social group to join, you might be in the wrong place.  Houston Marine Moms is a working group that actively supports troops around the globe.   We work hard to  ensure that our troops deployed around the globe have what they need to maintain morale and welfare while actively accomplishing their mission.


Membership in our organization requires that you are a mom that has a son or daughter currently serving on Active Duty or in an Active Reserve status.  If you are this person we are the group for you.  Houston Marine Moms participate in activities and functions such as fundraisers, donated item gathering, item packing, and shipping.  The work is hard, but rewarding because although the recipients may not know where a critical item came from,  someone back home cared enough to send it.  


Now that you are here, I would like you to stay - your efforts will make an impact on those who depend on us.   In addition, you will now become a member of OUR family.  As a Marine Mom myself, I understand that being a military parent can be a lonely job.  We will be YOUR support structure as well.   It has been said that the strength of the pack is the wolf and the strength of the wolf is the pack.....our pack is strong and I can assure you once you join, you will be stronger too. 


Often people say they want to make a difference - you have found a great place to start.  The work may be hard and consume some of your time, however, I can assure you that it gets easier.  Although your time with us may only be the length of an enlistment (4-6 years), the effects of your actions will last a life time.   Join us now so you can begin to develop your friendships - you will not be disappointed.


So, take some time and visit the rest of this website to learn more about us.  I look forward to hearing from you soon - you will make a great addition to our team. 


Sincerely, 


Tina Gorcie

President
