Team 1/4 Comm Baking Angels ~ March 2017

Featuring LCpl Silas Townley

A little about Team 1/4 Comm...

Thank you to Shannon Petersen for referring her son, Silas, for our Angel support! We are looking forward to sending him lots of Angel TLC!

Shannon writes, "Silas is a Lance Corporal with the 1/4 Marines, Data/Comm. He is currently a part of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit aboard the USS Somerset. This is his first deployment. Unlike some, he did not dream of becoming a Marine, it found its way to him.

His step-father is currently a First Sergeant with the Marines and as Silas watched the dedication and drive to maintain healthy living, he decided it was also for him. His infectious personality and talents have helped shape the wonderful Marine that he is today. We look forward to seeing how his military career will continue to shape him as a person and excited to see where life takes him in his future. We are very proud indeed!"

Shannon adds, "While on deployment, Silas has received a Meritorious Mast Award."

The Meritorious Mast Award: "For superior performance of duty while serving as a cyber systems technician in Communications Platoon, Headquarters and Service Company, First Battalion, Fourth Marines, from 1 April 2016 to 30 September 2016. During this period, you consistently exhibited exemplary perseverance, initiative, and uncommon devotion not only to mission accomplishment, but to the betterment of yourself and your fellow Marines. You spent over 400 hours developing and conducting training in critical MOS skills, contributed to the establishment of essential command and control capabilities over seven field exercises, and consistently set an example your peers and subordinates would do well to emulate. Your commitment and professionalism reflect credit upon yourself and were in keeping with the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service."

We can tell that Shannon is one proud Marine Mom! Our Angels are looking forward to supporting Silas and will take very good care of him!
