Gisela Lemon is the family readiness officer for the base’s newest unit, VMU-3. While the unit may be fresh on its feet, Gisela brings with her seven years of Marine Corps volunteer experience. She served as a key volunteer coordinator while stationed at Camp Lejeune and helped start an English as a Second Language program while her husband was on recruiting duty in Missouri. When the couple moved to Twentynine Palms, Gisela decided to put her skills and experience to work. “Honestly, I never thought that my volunteering would lead anywhere, but when I saw the job description I realized I’d been training for this position throughout the past six years,” she said.
