It has been brought to our attention that the beautiful stories and poetry that Barbara Mungovan so eloquently shares with our “Marine Corps Birthday” audiences each year, has gone for the most part unrecognized.

Ms. Mungovan’s brilliant prose and poetry, captures the essence of the Marine Corps. Her impassioned and spirited delivery embodies our time tested traditions. She touches the hearts and souls of all in attendance, year after year.

We’re certain that Barbara Mungovan’s two grandsons, both United States Marines, are basking in the glow of their grandmother’s love and devotion.

Sincerely,
John Donnelly & Norm Higgins
