Marine Cpl. Parcell was assigned to Combat Logistics Regiment 3, 3rd Marine Logistics Group, III Marine Expeditionary Force, Okinawa, Japan. Parcell died while participating in the Corps' Lioness program. The Lioness program uses female Marines from different military occupational specialties to search Iraqi women at checkpoints. Parcell was killed when an Iraqi woman she was searching detonated an explosive vest she was wearing. Jennifer graduated from Fallston High School in 2004 where she excelled in math. A couple of years ago, she went to Parris Island and watched the Marine graduation services for her older brother, Joseph. That is when she decided she wanted to be a Marine. She joined the Corps in January 2005 and became a landing support specialist for combat operations. Jennifer was a petite dynamo and always on the go. Even in Iraq, she was taking a course at University of Maryland and took yoga classes. Helping others was also something she always did. She sponsored an African child through a mission charity and when an earthquake devastated Pakistan last year, she and others in her unit were dispatched to the scene - she earned the Humanitarian Service Medal for her efforts. March 1 was when she was scheduled to leave Iraq and return to Okinawa. Jennifer always loved the water, including boating and scuba diving. She also liked yoga, music and spending time with family and friends. She planned to leave the Marines and attend college when her tour ended in 2009. The following is how Jennifer described herself -
I think that Im overall a pretty small person. I love to have fun doing nothing at all. Specailly just chillen with good friends. I love Yoga! But mostly I lay around and watch movies. Yes I am in the Marine Corps, but its a lot of fun sometimes. Im currently stationed at Okinawa, Japan Camp Foster. I hang out with Landing Support Company all the time, we always eat at CoCos and chill at Third Floor. Not much else to do in Oki before 12 o'clock.
