Volunteer Spotlight

Corporal Steven Fiegura: One of MCB Quantico’s Dedicated Volunteers

In 2014, before joining the Corps, Steven Fiegura, considered joining the Army as a means to help pay for college.  As fate would have it, the Army recruiter was out of the office.  As he turned to leave, he ran into Sergeant Bridges, a Marine Corps recruiter.  It was the level of pride Fiegura observed in Sgt. Bridges being a Marine and in the Corps that led him to choose the Marines over the Army. 

“I was more nervous about the flight to get to Parris Island than actually going through boot camp.”  While growing up in Pennsylvania, he always had an interest in physical fitness, but it was his senior drill instructor who helped improve his focus and discipline.  “The comradery we felt at the final drill, the level of motivation and pride as we competed is something I will never forget.” 

Today, Corporal Fiegura finds comradery amongst his fellow Marines at the Marine Corps Base Quantico Provost Marshal Office.  When he is not working, he can be found volunteering his time helping organizations across our area. 

“I grew up caring for animals.  We had dogs, cats, reptiles, parrots, fish, turtles, and ferrets. Living in the barracks makes having animals impossible.”  So Steven decided to see if helping at the Fredericksburg Society for the Prevention for Cruelty to Animals could provide him with a piece of home.  Now, he dedicates every Saturday morning he has available to caring for the cats and dogs. “I enjoy helping.  I don’t look at it as volunteering.  I look at as it is part of my job.  I could sleep in and be selfish, but why when I can give back?”

Three Reasons For Volunteering

1. Volunteering is great for the mind and body:

 

Helping others provides a means to increase overall levels of personal happiness. A small break from life's routines can improve your mood and helping others in need can help you refocus on the good things happening in your own life.  

 

2. Volunteering helps you connect with others:

 

Volunteering is the perfect bridge between Marine Corps life and the community both on base and off.   Volunteering helps you become more involved in the events and programs across our area.  It provides a great place to meet people with similar interests and can help families, friends, or units develop stronger relationships.   

 

3. Volunteering expands horizons:

 

A great way to test out a new career field or organization is to volunteer.  Most volunteers find the experiences provide for enhanced networking opportunities as well as the chance to develop new skills.
