(MURFREESBORO) This is the tenth year that locally founded A Soldier's Child has been stepping-in to help children of fallen soldiers. It's usually with birthdatys, Christmas, camp, leadership and more.
The first birthday gift recipient was Christian, the son of Murfreesboro's Marc Golczynski, a Marine staff sergeant killed in Iraq. This year 4,000 children of fallen soldiers will be served, and within three-years that number explodes to 10,000.
Operation Genesis Has Begun
A SOLDIER'S CHILD Founder and Executive Director Daryl Mackin told Murfreesboro Rotary members about a coming of age surprise that parents often try to give . . .
Operation Genesis is committed to getting a soldier's child their first car.
Mackin noted . . .
He explained that one per cent of America's population serve in the military, so that the other 99 per cent can enjoy freedom and all of the rights that come with living in the Home of the free.
Daryl concluded, "A Soldier's Child receives no government funding, and over the last four years the non-profit organization has averaged 86-cents of every dollar spent going to to programs and services for our kids."
A Soldier's Child is located in Smyrna, and has now serves fallen heroes across America. To discover how you can help or to learn more, visit their website: www.asoldierschild.org.
