**Special message from Gretchen**
I would like to add I am very happy to represent all Recon family members past and present. I thank my son for gifting me some of my best deepest friendships that I have made along this journey of mine but most importantly for giving me the title Force Recon Mother!
I am honored to be a family adviser for the Reconnaissance Foundation.
