For many years Stacey had the opportunity to support her children’s participation in youth sports programs in and around Roseville. Through her children’s involvement with youth sports Stacey was able to witness the life’s lessons of discipline, leadership and team spirit that came from their participation. In 2009, Stacey’s son enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, exposing their family to a life they had not known.

‚ÄčIn order to learn more about her son’s enlistment and to support military personnel in their commitment to our country, Stacey joined the Blue Star Moms.

Allegiant Giving | Richard Botkin

Richard Botkin
Veteran Mentoring Program

A former Marine Corps infantry officer (active service with 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines and 1st Reconnaissance Battalion), Richard Botkin served 15 years of combined active and reserve duty.

Rich and his wife have been married for 32 years and they have two adult sons. He is also the author of the book “Ride the Thunder—A Vietnam War Story of Honor and Triumph.” The book is currently on the Commandant’s Reading List.

Since 1998 Rich has been involved in annually leading short-term dental / medical missions to Cambodia where they work with Agape International Missions—an organization dedicated to ending the sexual trafficking of young children—and other in-country Christian missionaries to provide basic relief for the poor and hurting of that country.

In addition to the notion of aiding those who have selflessly served our nation, Botkin subscribes completely to the Allegiant Battle-concept of not just giving assistance to our veterans, but helping them to become the successful, productive members—and business LEADERS–of society they were created to be. He refers to the old proverb: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. TEACH a man to fish and you feed him for life.” This idea and model—combining entrepreneurial opportunities with strategic mentoring-brought to the table by Mark Haney, is something which will not only resonate with the veterans we intend to serve, but also the larger American public which will support and bless these efforts.
