Marines & Mickey Foundation has two (2) Missions…..
1) Marines to Disney Mission: We have committed to sending Marines that have just returned from deployment, not just combat deployments but ANY long term Operation, including the end of a three year recruiting duty or drill instructor duty to Disney World or Disney Land. Our Marines often come back from some of the worst places in the world, therefore, we want to send them to the best place in the World. We are going to send a Marine with His or Her family members which include all meals, tickets, and Hotel on the Disney Property for three (3) days, and two (2) nights. We want to reward our Marines for serving and protecting our country. Our goal.. is to soon be sending four (4) Marines and their families to Disney per month.
2) Parents to Parris Island (also San Diego) Mission: Approx. 500+ Marines graduate every Friday at each Marine Corps Recruit Depots in Parris Island SC and San Diego CA, more when females graduate every other Friday (at Parris Island only). Of those New Marines approx. 30-50 of them are alone after being dismissed… there’s no family or friends there to celebrate with them on one of the biggest days in that Marines life largely in part due to lack of financial ability from their families. We as Marines, DON’T LET MARINES STAND ALONE and we want our New Marines to know his or her family is now our family too, so Marines & Mickey’s Board of Officers and Directors are working tirelessly to figure out how to make that number dwindle to zero here in the very near future. Until then, Marines and Mickey will assist these families in multiple ways including financially but other ways as well to make it to their Marines graduation.

Why I chose to enlist into the Marine Corps: I want nothing more than to be apart of the brotherhood, to stand for something that most people can only dream of… The Marines, In addition I have always wanted to serve my country since I was a little kid.
My plans for my enlistment/future: I plan to serve 20 plus years in Marine Corps in hopes of retiring at some point. I would love more than anything to become a warrant officer! But I plan to gain the most knowledge and experience I can from the Corps then retire. School is defiantly something I am defiantly going to pursue probably up to my masters degree.
My words to other poolees/future Marines: I have been in the DEP for almost a year and all I can say is the freakin put out all day every day 24/7 you are the master of your destiny you want something go get it!! Put out, there is a reason your Drill Instructors are going to do what they do to you. They are only making you better!

Ship date and MOS: June 9th, Aviation Mechanics
Why I chose to enlist into the Marine Corps: I chose to enlist within the marine corps because I need to feel something new about myself, pride and a sense that I can accomplish anything if I set my mind to it and taking on the world’s best, and baddest fighting force is definitely a great stepping stone on my way out of high school
My plans for my enlistment/future: My plans for the Marine Corps are pretty simple, I am wanting to do aviation mechanics and then jump either to another enlistment or into the normal working field and work on airplanes outside of the military
My words for other poolees/future Marines: My words to my fellow poolees is never ever give up always think about what your life will be if you accomplish your biggest defeat.
