~Semper Fi Sister Beach Blast arrives Oct. 17~

As a Marine mom, Gunnerson understands what the Beach Blast – in effect a four-day Girls Night Out break from the homefront of war – provides to the women, its value to those clinging to normalcy when little of life is normal with a loved one overseas in a war zone.

“I am so looking forward to it,” Gunnerson said. “It’s nice. We are all at different stages of having a need for support. If they are about to come home, you are happy. If they are just entering boot camp, you are sad.

“It’s nice to have a group of women who know what you are going through.”
