Division 2 is proud to announce the 2020 Division 2 Young Marine of the Year, YM SgtMaj Nathaniel Paredes, of the Quantico Young Marines. YM SgtMaj Paredes joined the Young Marines in 2015 at age 11.

YM SgtMaj Paredes joined the Young Marines because he saw that "it was a group of youth that were dedicated to building better leaders and helping local youth become better citizens, and I wanted to be a part of that. To me, it is always important to be a part of a team, to be something bigger than yourself, because in the end, no one achieves greatness alone."

After high school, YM SgtMaj Paredes plans to participate in ROTC in college, while majoring in Computer Engineering, and then serve as an officer in the Marine Corps.

Please join us in congratulating the 2020 Division 2 YMOY, Young Marine SgtMaj Paredes! #youngmarines #div2ym #div2YMOY #leadership #teamwork #discipline

DC Public Schools

In September 2001, three students, Asia Cottom, Bernard Brown, and Rodney Dickens, and their teachers, Hilda Taylor, James Debeuneure, and Sarah Clark, were chosen to participate in a trip to study ecology in California beside National Geographic Society researchers.

On September 11, less than 35 minutes into the trip, their flight was hijacked. At 9:37AM, the plane crashed into the Pentagon. All 64 passengers on board were killed. One hundred and twenty-five Pentagon employees lost their lives.

Asia, Bernard, Rodney, Hilda, James, and Sarah were part of the DCPS family and will not be forgotten.

Asia was a new student at Backus Middle School (now Lasalle-Backus EC DCPS). Her father worked at the school as a coach and a classroom aide. Teachers remembered Asia as kindhearted and eager to help her classmates.

Bernard was the type of student who kept teachers on their toes at Leckie Elementary School. Bernard’s teachers agreed that he was showing real progress, and that was one of the reasons why he was recommended to participate in the trip. He loved basketball and wanted to play professionally one day.

Rodney always made the honor roll at Ketcham Elementary School. His mother expected him to be a role model for his two younger brothers, as his two older sisters had been for him. His favorite activity was watching professional wrestling—no matter what he was doing, “…he made it home to see wrestling,” his aunt remembered.

Asia, Bernard, and Rodney were each 11 years old.

Hilda Taylor was a veteran teacher at Leckie Elementary School, teaching 6th grade. Originally from Sierra Leone, she immigrated to the United States to create a better life for her family. Ms. Taylor was a mother and a grandmother.

James Debeuneure returned to the classroom as a second career. He was a 5th grade teacher at Ketcham Elementary School. He was known for arriving early and leaving late. Mr. Debeuneure was a father of three.

Sarah Clark began teaching in DCPS in 1965, and worked as a 6th grade teacher at Backus Middle School. She was engaged to be married. Ms. Clark was a mother of two.

Our deepest sympathies remain with their families.

Division 2 Young Marines

Ladies and Gentlemen,

This is a very important call for immediate action, and we need your help. Our Young Marines’ program historically has received federal funding on an annual basis of 4 million dollars. Upon returning from the Adult Leaders Conference we were advised our federal funding for fiscal year 2020 is currently slated for 1 million dollars. A fiscal cutback of this nature would greatly impact our ability to provide the current level of services and programs to our Young Marines and Volunteers.

This has me engaged daily in meeting with members of congress and their staffs. I am providing them as much information on the benefits of all to we do to gain support to restore our funding to 4 million dollars next year. Our Caucus Chairs, Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) and Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) have been extremely supportive in this effort for the last 3 months. We would not be this far without their belief in our program and the work of their staffs. Working together, today they sponsored the Amendment to restore this funding! However, it still needs to be voted on and pass.

There is a chance we can recover some or all our funding next week in the House of Representatives. We need your help to reach out to your local congressional representative and ask them to support our amendment next week with their vote in favor of restoring our funding. We have bipartisan support with plenty of Democrats and Republicans on our caucus in support of youth development. There is strength in numbers and every vote counts this week.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

1. 1. Phone calls and emails will greatly increase our chances to restore funding. The current schedule has the Defense Bill votes starting on Wednesday 11 June so please reach out Monday and Tuesday this week. These calls can be to the local offices or the Washington DC Office. The office numbers will be listed on their website. Find your representative via this link and type in your zip code: https://www.house.gov/representatives/find-your-representative

2. 2. Be brief but tell them why this program is important to your Young Marines and why we need to keep it funded to help support their development into engaged citizens and responsible healthy adults. I have plenty of stories I tell, I know all of you have plenty of success stories of the impact this program has had on youth in your communities.

3. 3. If you have met the Congressperson or staff before at an event, remind them of this.

4. 4. HERE IS THE ASK (May help to put this part in bold or underline to draw attention if in an email): When calling or sending an email to your local congressional representative, the amendment we need them to support is below, we are asking them to support this amendment and vote for it:

AMENDMENT TO DIVISION C TO RULES

OFFERED BY MR. MOULTON OF MASSACHUSETTS

Defense Appropriations Bill: Page 251, line 10 and 12.

Counter Drug, Drug Demand Reduction

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT: If approved in the House, then it would move onto the Senate. I am already working on the Senate. They have been receptive and supportive, but we need to win on the House side first and timing is critical. I will provide more information as it becomes available.

Thanks for all you do, and I am confident that we will win this back together.

Semper Fidelis,
Col William P. Davis, USMC (Ret)
CEO, Young Marines
