|Army Reserve Officer Volunteers in Military Mentoring Program|
Members of our nation’s Armed Forces selflessly devote themselves to the lives of children who face adversity across the country. An example is Capt. Maria Lucero, who was profiled recently in the “Killeen Daily Herald.” After serving in the Army Reserve for more than 11 years, Capt. Lucero volunteers her time as a mentor in the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas Military Mentors Program.
Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Military Mentoring Program (MMP) supports children ages 9-17 of veteran and active-duty military personnel of all branches and components of the U.S. Armed Forces, including National Guard and reserve.
The MMP reinforces the child’s connection with the parent and community; respects and acknowledges the value of military values as a platform for the child’s personal development; and supports educational achievement.
“I want to offer my congratulations to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas for this wonderful article highlighting a former Fort Hood soldier involved as a Big in their Military Mentoring Program,” said retired Col. Rod Davis, Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Military Mentoring Program. “Congratulations also for their recent receipt of a $150,000 grant from the Texas Veterans Commission to serve children of veterans."
