My husband is an RPC (Religious Programs Specialist Chief Petty Officer) – so of COURSE I’m going to share awesome articles I find about his fellow RP’s! Congrats RPC Mondragon!
Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, CA (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
At a ceremony this morning at the Third Marine Aircraft Wing at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) presented the 2013 Military Fatherhood Award™ to RPC Patrick Mondragon, US Navy.
Mondragon, a husband and father of two, had to act as a solo parent during his wife’s recent life-threatening health complications. During that time, he cared for his wife and children while continuing to fulfill his military duties. In a display of amazing work-family balance, he recorded over 20 videos of himself reading stories to his children so that they could see and hear him while he was onboard the USS Bunker Hill and forward deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.
In addition to caring for his own family, he dedicates himself to supporting other military families. As a religious program specialist on his base, he counsels dads and families on handling the challenges of military life. He was also the United through Reading Program Coordinator on the USS Bunker Hill, helping hundreds of dads stay connected to their children while deployed.
One of RPC Mondragon’s fellow sailors said, “I am not surprised that RPC Mondragon was selected. He is absolutely the father, man, sailor, RPC of the year, every year, in my book. I wish him and his family the best and I am so proud to serve along side of Patrick in the sea services.”

I love movies that fall somewhere between “horror” and “comedy.” The first Scary Movie made me laugh SO HARD and Zombieland is one of my favorite movies of all time (same with Shaun of the Dead!). So, when I saw the trailer for This is the End I was very excited! Talk about an all-star cast! The movie stars James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Michael Cera and Emma Watson.
The movie follows six friends trapped in a house after a series of strange and catastrophic events devastate Los Angeles. As the world unravels outside, dwindling supplies and cabin fever threaten to tear apart the friendships inside. Eventually, they are forced to leave the house, facing their fate and the true meaning of friendship and redemption.
The movie looks HILARIOUS and – thanks to Aloha Agency and Ward 16 Theaters – my husband and I will be seeing this movie on the 10th! Woohoo DATE NIGHT!!
