“My mother and father grew up in Mexico, but I was born in California at Camp Pendleton. I was about five when my father, Sergeant Edgar Sanchez USMC, returned home from his service in Iraq. My father’s career as a hydraulics mechanic inspired me to want to study Mechanical Engineering at Texas Tech University. My scholastic research is focused on the customization of 3D-printed prosthetics. I also helped design drone attachments to assist with reforestation. As a first-generation college student, support from the MCSF helped make college a reality. I feel the best way I can show my gratitude is to use my skills to help engineer a better world for others.”

Devotion is an aerial war epic based on the bestselling book. This powerful film tells the inspirational story of Jesse Brown, the first Black aviator in Navy history, and his fellow fighter pilot and friend, Tom Hudner. Their heroic sacrifices in the Korean War would ultimately make them the Navy's most celebrated wingmen. In honor of Jesse and Tom’s legacy, proceeds from the film Devotion will support the MCSF and the Brown Hudner Navy Scholarship Foundation, which will provide scholarships to the children of their fellow Navy Sailors.

David McCallum

In Memoriam, David McCallum, 1933-2023

David McCallum was one of the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation’s greatest champions. His brother-in-law, Marine Corporal George Whitney Carpenter, was killed in Vietnam in 1967. Determined to keep George’s legacy alive, David and his wife, Katherine, established a scholarship through MCSF in his name to directly benefit the children of Marines. We fondly recall David weaving MCSF into the script of NCIS episodes and thrilling the audience when he served as the Master of Ceremonies for the New York Leatherneck Ball. Thank you to all those who have contributed in David’s honor. We invite everyone to watch the NCIS episode dedicated to David which will air on CBS on Monday, February 19. To make a contribution in David’s memory, please visit mcsf.org/david.
