Micaila R. Britto


Growing up I always wanted a challenge in my life. The biggest challenge came in 1987 when I joined the United States Marine Corps at 17. I obtained the rank of Corporal. My MOS was 7011/Aircraft Launch and Recovery – working with the arresting gear on the flight line and all the airfield lighting. During my time I was stationed on Okinawa Japan and MCAGCC 29 Palms, CA. I can honestly say that graduating boot camp was one of the proudest moments in my life. Yet after 14 years of being out of the Marines, I recently received a Letter of Appreciation from the Commanding Officer MWSS-372, which truly humbled me.

As the Eastern MA Chapter President of the Women Marines Association, I have been able to continue to be a mentor to young women who are currently on active duty. I designed a Challenge Coin— “Band of Sisters”—to represent all Marines who happen to be women. And have been helping with other veterans’ organizations in the Commonwealth and the nation. At Raytheon Company, I am still able to help give back to our servicemen and women who serve in every clime and place.
