A Soldier's Child founder Daryl Mackin with Christian Golczynski, the first child adopted by A-S-C.
Growth in A Soldier's Child prompts its founder to take on the position full time. Daryl Mackin is winding up his career at Blackman High School as a culinary arts teacher and will assume leading A-S-C full time. His official first full day on the job will be October 1st. A Soldier's Child honors the memory of the parent who gave their life for our freedom by honoring his or her children on their birthday. Mackin says the goal of A-S-C is to reach every soldier's child, adopting them into the foundation until they're of adult age. The first child adopted by A Soldier's Child was Christian Golczynski, whose father, U.S. Marine Staff Sgt. Marc Golczynski, was killed in Iraq. Golczynski's parents, Henry and Faye of Franklin's Printworks, live in Murfreesboro.
