Medevacs Land at Camp Pendleton

Karen Guenther and Team

Our story began in the spring of 2003. Just returning from Operation Iraqi Freedom, the first wave of wounded Marines and Sailors landed at Camp Pendleton, California. A dedicated group of Marine spouses jumped in to greet the wounded service members and their families, providing them with needed items for comfort and recovery. They provided a specialized van for a quadriplegic, a young Marine LCpl, through the generosity of donors like retired Marine Colonel Jack Kelly. This was just the beginning of a long commitment and promise to care for our wounded, ill, and injured and their families.
