Montero Medical Missions Commemorates Memorial Weekend

Organized by Montero Medical Missions (MMM) and Alaska Battle Dawgs on Sunday, May 29th Memorial weekend, 2022, the Patriotic Parade of Boats and Fish Fry joint fundraiser was a huge success and attended by veterans, volunteer medical professionals, congressional representatives, including Congressman Bobby Scott, State Senator Jen Kiggans, former Governor George Allen, his daughter Brooke Allen, and hundreds of supporters of Montero Medical Missions.

Former Gov. George Allen served as the Parade of Boats’ Grand Marshal. ‘Gratitude’ Boat Capt. Ernie Hux and his wife Carolyn Castleberry led the patriotic boat parade along the Atlantic coastal inlet of Broad Bay in VA Beach. The ‘Bucket List’ lead boat was skippered by Luke Robertson with MMM VP Vince Medina on the PA system.

State Senator Jen Kiggans, Battle Dawgs Col. Jen Casillo, Rick Casillo, Dr. Deb Wood, and Rose Hong from Global Dragon TV were all on board to support this grand fundraising event to support Montero Medical Missions and Alaska Battle Dawgs. 

Montero Medical Missions Commemorates Memorial Weekend

Based in Chesapeake, Virginia, USA, Montero Medical Missions’ mission and vision are to combine the humanitarian efforts of a medical missioner and that of a Peace Corps volunteer. This was accomplished through the creation of sustainable healthcare projects, both domestic and international. On the domestic front, its innovative Health Fair for Veterans project was recognized by the American College of Surgeons at its 100th Clinical Congress in October 2013, by having the MMM Abstract Project Presentation displayed alongside academic institutions’ posters. Currently, MMM is in partnership with the Alaska Battle Dawgs’ camp clinic involved in naturopathic healing of veterans with TBI, PTSD, and Opioid dependence diagnoses through the addition of MMM Prosthetic, Eyesight 20/20, Dental Care projects plus HBOT chamber availability. MMM Educate the Children and Technology Donation projects always elicit grateful accolades from the recipient Elementary Schools and Foundations in the Philippines. This year’s Philippines Presidential Award ‘Kaanib ng Bayan'[Ally of the People] is another recognition of MMM’s accomplishments.

Since its inception in 2011, MMM continues to support its core mission despite having no salaried employees, developing its mission work through fundraising activities plus careful strategic volunteerism relationships and partnerships with humanitarian corporations, foundations, and service organizations.

Its domestic project has recently been focused on the Dental Care and Treatment of veterans in need, in partnership with the Chesapeake Care Clinic Dental Division. The new partnership this year with Alaska Battle Dawgs will expand the fundraising efforts, including this historic 1st Annual Patriotic Parade of Boats and Fish Fry in Virginia Beach on Sunday, May 29, 2022.
