Bring Our Boys Home

As many of you all know September of 2017 there was a catastrophic fire of an Amphibious Assault Vehicle (Amtrak) during a training exercise. Many Marines may have seen this situation before in combat, but this was right here on Camp Pendleton in a controlled training environment. Since then the men involved in that horrible accident have been in constant care in San Antonio, Texas and in various facilities around the country.      In time we tend to forget the events of our past due to life taking its daily tolls and our one-hundred mile an hour lifestyle, that is anything but the case for these men. Only in their twenties this event has forever transformed their lives in and in no way can be forgotten.  In the last year they have come a long way through multiple surgeries, continually rehabilitation, and that Marine Corps mettle which they all posses, but it is time to rest and refit.      It is with that I am asking to bring them back to California for a much needed reunion with; their brothers, their friends, their family. This is set up so that Corporal Carlos Tinoco, Corporal Oscar Delarosa and Corporal Alex Cruz can be back with us. Once enough money is raised and flights are established follow on detail will be established.  I cannot say it enough, thank you for your time and generosity!
