“I have a beautiful 5 year old daughter and she means everything to me. She is the reason why I stay in Southern Illinois. My job affords me the schedule and opportunity to be able to pick her up and drop her off at school at the same times. I am heavily involved in the community. I am a proud member of Team Red, White & Blue and help organize events or support them at least twice a month. I am a board member of the Marine Corps league. I am also a member of the Marion VFW Post 1301. I try to attend as many meetings as my schedule allows.”
– Lance Corporal Williams Jose Martinez, United States Marines
