George, a supervisor for the US Navy Recruiting in the Inland Northwest is grateful for the YMCA. Originally from Texas, he and his wife Jacinta along with their seven children have moved several times around the country but have always been able to join a YMCA thanks to the Military Outreach program. Being able to take the kids to the Y during George’s 2 deployments was vitally important to his wife. The YMCA has provided the perfect place for the Wagner family to spend time together having fun and the whole family has been able to stay healthy and participate in a variety of programs for all ages. For George as a serviceman of the US Navy, that meant being able to stay in shape to pass his fitness tests. For the rest of the family, it meant swim lessons, pool-time fun, playing on basketball teams and just enjoying all the Y has to offer. “The YMCA Military Outreach Program has been a blessing to me and my family for many years,” says George.
