Brenda Garth is President and Co-Founder of Semper Fi Sisters, a non-profit organization serving women who stand beside and behind our men and women in the uniforms that serve our nation. Brenda is also President of Forgotten Coast Warrior Weekend, a non-profit honoring combat injured war heroes annually in Gulf County. Both are 100% volunteer based organizations.
An always faithful sisterhood, open to women who have a family member who has served or is serving in ALL BRANCHES of the U. S. Armed Forces. We offer support to each other and military family members as well as to individuals that are active duty or having served or are now a veteran. Our goal is to promote and provide moral support, assistance and empowerment by promoting communication, exchange of information and resources to help one another and individual military members and veterans.
Annually each October we host a Semper Fi Sisters Beach Blast in Gulf Country, FL for our female members. We offer seminars that are educational in nature and support materials. Registration & donations are made by attendees and we receive public donations for shipping the “boxes of love from the home front” care/comfort packages plus purchasing items not received as a contribution to this program. In 2009 our first year, we shipped 36 boxes, in 2010 we packed over 300 boxes & 2011 over 700 and expect to exceed over 1000 boxes this year (Oct 17-21, 2012).

Autumn Arnold is a single mom of two small children, and was looking for some serious help. Plagued with depression, fatigue, heartburn, and high blood pressure, she found a nutrition program that after only two weeks of starting the program, saw a great imporvement in her heartburn and high blood pressure and her energy shot through the roof. But the best part, she says, is that she has lost 33 pounds and gone from a size 20 to a size 14 and still going.
As a massage therapist for 10 years, Autumn spent eleven months to plan and open the doors to her own Nutrition Club and has been open for one year six months. She feels she is changing lives with health and wealth and loving every minute of it!!!
