Congratulations to Ryan R. as the Puerto Rico Military Youth of the Year!

Congratulations to Ryan R. as the Puerto Rico Military Youth of the Year!

Ryan is the winner of the 2020 Puerto Rico Military Youth of the Year event. As the State Military Youth of the Year, Ryan R. has earned the opportunity to represent Puerto Rico (Military) at the upcoming Northeast Regional Youth of the Year Celebration. All teens that competed were outstanding young adults and should take pride in their performances. Ryan is a Senior Student from DoDea Ramey School. Both of Ryan’s parents are teachers at the DoDEA School in PR.

We have the pleasure of having Ryan E. Roettger as an active member of the Base Detachment Borinquen’s Youth Program in affiliation with Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Every kid, youth and teen finds their own special place here in this Club. The programs we provide are focused to develop and exemplifying good character not only at the Club, but in school with peers and at their home with family. Since I meet Ryan, I saw a charismatic and responsible person, always smiling, always available and always ready to learn and help student. His caring and leadership skills are more than noticeable.

At the Youth Program, Ryan E Roettger is one of those members with character and leadership that identify issues and try to find solutions. He brings new ideas. It is amazing to see Ryan’s growth and it is worth admiring the impact that he has on other Youths not only in our program but also at school and on his community. Being part of the Keystone Club has been the motor and main reason for Ryan’s impact to others.

Ryan knows the importance and how meaningful it is to give back to his community. Puerto Rico needs more Teens like Ryan that can set an example to others. Demonstrating that our behaviors can make a change for good or for wrong but Ryan chooses to be a positive impact on others. As a Keystone member, he had done several projects such as visits to the elderly homes, numerous beach clean-ups, and coordinated food drives. As the actual Keystone President as well, he has helped organize several activities alongside his Keystone Club peers and Unit Director such as organize teen’s oriented activities to increase our teen membership and organize and actively participate in fundraisers for the benefit of all the Club members.

Ryan and the keystone club helped during the community fall festival and car wash event. Also, painting Base Detachment community gym. Ryan is active and participates in the same way in his school’s activities, organizations, and sports teams as he does in the club as well. By doing, this Ryan does not neglect his academic responsibilities. Ryan has been accepted at Florida State University.

Ryan is determined to achieve his goals and dreams through hard work and dedication. Ryan encourages others to participate in MYOY even knowing that he will be participating as well. His dedication and commitment include making the decision to participate and be able to represent the USCG and our Youth Program as a Military Youth of the Year. He is demonstrating he is passionate about the higher propose of what he does and when he targets he fulfills the big mission.

Congratulations, Ryan -MYOY 2020!

Did you know that we have three candidates for Military Spouse of the Year?

About the Military Spouse of the Year Program

The Armed Forces Insurance Military Spouse of the Year® (AFI MSOY) award was founded in 2008 to honor military spouses from all branches of service. More than one million military spouses support and maintain the homefront while our service members defend this great nation.

The AFI MSOY award recognizes military spouses’ important contributions and unwavering commitment to the military community and our country. Nominations for AFI MSOY are made by both the civilian and military community. There are four rounds of advancement, culminating in the announcement of the overall AFI MSOY in our nation’s capital in early May. AFI MSOY is so much more than an award!
