Congratulations to Pvt. 1st Class Julia Carroll, of Idaho Falls, Idaho, Pvt. 1st Class Cristina Fuentes Monternegro, of Coral Springs, Fla., and Pvt. 1st Class Katie Gorz, of St. Paul, Minnesota for being the first 3 women to graduate from the Marine Corps’ enlisted infantry training school in North Carolina. The three completed the 59-day course and met the same test standards as the men in the same program. The Camp Geiger course is the follow-on training for Marines who graduate from basic training at Parris Island, South Carolina. We admire you for your achievements!

Letter from a Care Package Recipient
“Hello, thank you for the care package and for your support. This is my first deployment, so far so good. Sometimes it gets really lonely here without family and friends. Thank God we have people like you thinking about us. I decided to share my gifts with my 2 NCO’s… They have been so helpful, making sure I am ok and keeping my morale high. I attached pictures we were really excited….by the way you were on point with all the skin care products, Iraq is very dry and dusty oh yea and hot! Once again thank you for your appreciation.
Have A Blessed Day!
PFC Pamela R.”
