Lacey went into detail about how she thinks the Marines saved her life. She said, “Growing up, I did not have the role models that I needed. I didn’t know what I wanted to be. I didn’t know what a positive, happy, healthy lifestyle looked like. All I knew, while looking around, [was] my dysfunctional, drug-infested, mental health. Anger, depression. It seeped and destroyed my family. That’s the life that I knew.”
Days like today mean a lot to Lacey and she spoke on what Tribute to the Troops means to her. “I know not only what the military goes through — the veterans, the active-duty — but their spouses, their kids. They’re going through hell. The divorce rate’s high, the arguments are high. The veterans are tired, the active-duty — they go through a lot.”
