Featuring Daniel Fessenden

A little about Team HMLA 269 Gunrunners...

Cindy's Baking Angels would like to thank Doug Fessenden, Daniel's father, for referring Team HMLA 269 Gunrunners for our support. Our Angels will take good care of Daniel and his Buddies!

Doug writes, "Danny is a Crew Chief & Door Gunner on Huey Helicopters at HMLA 269 Gunrunners based in MCAS New River, North Carolina. 

Danny grew up in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. Danny played Ice Hockey for the Littleton Hawks since he was 4 years old and played for his high school and rec league in college. He graduated from Mountain Vista High School and spent 1 year at the University of Colorado. He then joined the United States Marine Corps.

After boot camp at MCRD San Diego, Danny completed training for Aviation Flight Crew and was assigned as a Crew Chief on Huey Helicopters. After additional training at Camp Pendleton and Pensacola, he was assigned to the HMLA 269 Gunrunners, as a Crew Chief and Door Gunner.

He also met his, now wife, in the Marine Corps. She is also a U.S. Marine Crew Chief and Door Gunner based at NAS New Orleans, and 6 months ago had a beautiful baby boy."

Congratulations, Daniel and family, on the birth of your son! Our Angels are anxious to support you and wish you the best!
