The Marine Corps Birthday Ball is a long-standing tradition and a magnificent affair. For Megan Drake, it will be unlike anything she has ever experienced.
Megan Drake is going to be treated like a celebrity. She’s going to be the center of attention as a guest at one of the most prestigious and internationally celebrated events this year.
“From the moment I heard I had been selected, I told myself no matter what my disability I was going to finish,” said Kristin Sthole. “When my husband told me he had been selected I was excited, I already had my ticket ready to be there for his ceremony.

Parrish is nearly two-thirds of the way through a year-long deployment, and although she must be away from her son, she is thankful for all the opportunities and benefits the Marine Corps has provided her family.
