I’ve been spending my summer training for this race and keeping in touch with the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation. The scholarship foundation has opened such amazing opportunities for me and have continued to remind me to keep pushing forward.Two weekends ago, the foundation invited my mother and I to have dinner with the Commandant of the United States Marine Corps. I was lucky enough to speak with the Commandant personally and he had nothing but amazing things to say about our father. When I explained the accident of the V-22, he simply gave me a hug. He and his wife fly in the V-22 often and told me that the aircraft has been perfected… thanks to people like Dad.
