Daryl Mackin of A Soldier’s Child

Tuesday, October 22, 2019

This is the tenth year that locally founded A Soldier’s Child has been stepping-in to help children of fallen soldiers. It’s usually with birthdays, Christmas, camp, leadership and more.

The first birthday gift recipient was Christian, the son of Murfreesboro’s Marc Golczynski, a Marine staff sergeant killed in Iraq. This year 4,000 children of fallen soldiers will be

served, and within three-years that number explodes to 10,000.

A SOLDIER’S CHILD Founder and Executive Director Daryl Mackin told Murfreesboro Rotary members about a coming of age surprise that parents often try to give.
