Members of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force’s Entry 49 and Woman Entry 19 recently paused from their busy schedules as they gave back to the community with a presentation of assorted items on Saturday 6th March 2021.
As the Royal Bahamas Defence Force continues to enforce the Commander Defence Force, Commodore Raymond King’s strategic objective of strengthening relationships with stakeholders and the community at large as a socially corporate citizen, the combined male and female squad recently joined forces to assist the “Family of All Murder Victims” (FOAM) organization.
Receiving the grocery items from the Officers and Marines at the Nassau Village headquarters was Mrs. Khandi Gibson, President and founder of the non-profit organization, who expressed her appreciation for the donated items. According to Mrs. Gibson, those items will greatly assist the individuals in need, as the current pandemic has been a blow especially to those who are unable to work.
According to Able Woman Marine Stefka Munroe, the squadmates are always willing to give back to the community: “Every year, we come together as an Entry for our anniversaries to either attend a church service, have lunch or do some type of community service, and this year, we wanted to give back to an organization that needs assistance. We thank God for allowing us to serve nine years to our country, and we will continue to give back to those in need”.
Commodore Raymond King, along with the Officers and Marines of the Royal Bahamas Defence Force congratulate Entry 49/Woman Entry 19 on their achievement, and extend Bravo Zulu to them as they continue to give back to the community, while serving their country.
The combined squad of sixty-one (61) members observed nine years as a unit, after enlisting on February 25, 2012, and together they continue to make significant contributions to the organization.
The Royal Bahamas Defence Force remains committed to strengthening Community Relations while guarding our heritage.
