LTCOL MARY K. BROUSSARD, USMCR (RET) HONORED BY TOYS FOR TOTS FOUNDATION
Quantico, VA: LtCol Mary K. Broussard, USMCR (Ret) has been named 2007 Toys for Tots Foundation, Region II, Local Community Organization “Coordinator of the Year.” LtCol Broussard has long been active with Toys for Tots in the Kentuckiana area, devoting much of her time to this worthy cause. Although she has been assisted in her efforts by many Marine Corps reservists and veterans over the years, she has been largely responsible for the success of Toys for Tots in the Kentuckiana area, through her enthusiastic embrace of this wonderful cause and exemplary leadership. During the 2007 campaign, she was ably assisted by John Peyton and many dedicated volunteers. Through LtCol Broussard’s efforts, and those who regularly assist her, such as the Marine Corps League, Kentuckiana Detachment #729, thousands of needy Kentuckiana children have received shiny new toys at Christmas, as a message of hope that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders. Congratulations to LtCol Mary K. Broussard, USMC (Ret) and those who labored with her on a job well done.
