My wife Pam & I are big supporters of the Young Marines program after our son, Sgt Sergio Pineda, USMC, participated in the program with the Tri-Cities Young Marine for almost seven years. Though the trips from Prosser were long, cold & lonely we made them twice a week and on Saturdays. He decided that he wanted to join the Marines and upon graduation from High School, and after a tour to Iraq in 2006-2007, Sgt Pineda is now a Marine Recruiter out of San Diego... The program enhanced his life and made us proud parents of a US Marine.

Wow,
I am very impressed with all of the information on this web site about your wonderful program. I am happy to see that there are some respectful, good valued, Country and God fearing young people. My hat is off to all of you and the wonderful staff headed by a brother in Law Enforcement Joe Lusignan.

I want you all to know that we appreciate and love what you are doing for our youth and the community.

Thanks so much and much continued success.

To the Columbia River Young Marines:

Great web site! I am so glad to see this program instill positive values in our youth. I have seen you work at the Law Enforcement booth at the Benton County Fair and Optimist Club for the past 5 years. You give so much back to your communities many times without the spot light. I know how that can feel because I am a police officer for the City of Kennewick. You all work so hard with fundraising and to meet every other Thursday and Saturday. All of the things you do and learn will help you throughout your life. Pride and leadership skills will serve you well. I am proud of you all and keep up the good work!

I think this is a wonderful site to be able to catch all the activities of these young boys and girls. Joe you and your staff have proven yourself to us that you are truly dedicated to these young people, and what a positive influence you are on them. Great "Atta boys" to you.

Our grandson really is happy being a young marine and we are very proud of PFC Brandon W. Gregg.

Happy holidays to all and keep up the good work.

Just like to say that I liked your site. It is important for the youth of today to have a driving force in their lives and the Young Marines couldn't be a better one. Tell the recruits that they will make friends for a lifetime if they decide to join the Marines. Keep up the good work!

Since becoming part of Cpl. Boyd's family, I have seen a change in him and it has all come from being a part of the Young Marines. I have to give credit where it is due to the Staff and Mr. Lusignan.

The Columbia River Young Marines continually demonstrate their effective training, commitment to others, and ability to accomplish great things with teamwork. This last year their accomplishments of placing flags and providing escort and color guard services during Memorial Day Celebrations, and now on Saturday cleaning the yards of Veterans that are no longer able. They served 8 families with 150 hours of service. Way to Go. You truly set an example for others to follow.
