The Marine Corps Security Force Battalion at Bangor, WA commanded by Lieutenant Colonel Stephen Keane, is a Bremerton Navy League Adopted Unit. Six of our Board members were delighted and honoured to volunteer to assist LtCol Keane’s wife, Vanessa, with the Battalion’s Baby Shower held in February.
This Battalion along with a similar unit in Kings Bay, GA, are unique Marine Corps Units made up of both Sailors and Marines. They guard America’s most valuable military assets. The young Marines and Sailors in Colonel Keane’s Command, have a tough, demanding job, day in and day out they patrol, protect and serve in all kinds of weather.
We have collected such items as gently used car seats, strollers, a crib and crib linens, receiving blankets, teddy bears, baby food, formula, baby clothing plus diapers. We are grateful to the local businesses who were generous in their pricing of items when they became aware of the baby shower including: Bella Luna Consignment Boutique in West Bremerton, GoodWill and Grocery Outlet in Silverdale.
We know our efforts were well-received by the wonderful volunteers of the MCSFBn Family Readiness Team and we look forward to their future events.
