The Goetz family recently visited Patriot Point for a weekend retreat sponsored by Hope for the Warriors.
Lawrence Goetz is a gunnery sergeant currently stationed at Marine Corps headquarters in Quantico, where he is an administrative chief. He has served in the Marine Corps for 17 years. Lawrence, his wife Stephanie and their two children enjoyed a relaxing weekend at Patriot Point, where they were able to fish, hike throughout the property and enjoy indoor and outdoor activities.
“My family and I are truly grateful for being able to spend time at Patriot Point,” Goetz said. “Being there is a break from all the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. It was great having a weekend where the whole family stayed off their tablets and phones. It was great being able to rekindle family time that can be easily neglected.
“The impact that Patriot Point has on our service members is truly magical. It is a great place to relax your mind, body, and soul. You are able to spend quality time with your loved ones. Spending time at Patriot Point allows you to reset. Allowing service members to come back to work healthier and more committed to their duties.”
