QUANTICO, Va.—Making moments for troops is in Joyce Murphy’s DNA. She grew up with a Marine father, a mother who managed the USO center in Twentynine Palms, California, and married a Marine who served 26 years.
By day, Murphy is a family readiness program manager at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia. By night, she's a singing, dancing, toy-delivering USO volunteer who has been helping with the Sesame Street/USO Experience for Military Families the last three years it's come to the base.
For all these reasons, Murphy was selected as May’s Sesame Street/USO Moment Maker of the Month.
"When you mix USO with Sesame Street you know it's going to be a fun time, so getting to interact with the families and the children and to see how excited they get with all the different Sesame Street characters, is the reason I come back every year," she said.
