Macala Shelton was a member of Tillicum Girl Scout Troop 40094 and lived in Tillicum with her family while her mother was stationed at JBLM. I got to know Macala while I served as the director of the Tillicum Youth and Family Center. She was a sweet child with a kind heart. This tragedy is beyond any understanding. Macala attended Woodbrook Middle School before her family relocated to Missouri while her mother was deployed to Afghanistan.
