Commissioning Committee Members attend USMC Wounded Warrior Birthday Ball with Peralta family

Committee Co-Chair Tom Garcia hosted Rosa Peralta, a number of her sisters, George Sabga, Michelle Ragsdale and her friend Jason Gerin (LtCol, USMC Ret.) at the USMC Wounded Warrior Birthday Ball last Friday (November 11th, 2016).  Rosa and her sisters had a great time and the command and other members of the Battalion made them all feel very special.  Tom briefed the Peralta’s on our initial commissioning ceremony progress and discussed the trip that Paul Denyer and he had made to Morse High School.  The Peralta’s were excited to think that the school may be involved.

In addition to the Peralta family, the evening was highlighted by the featured speaker, Mark “Oz” Geist, who fought in the battle of Benghazi, Libya in September of 2012.
