Memorial Day Reflections

by Lieutenant General George J. Trautman III USMC (Ret.), Chairman, Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation

This Memorial Day, we pause to pay our respects, as Americans, to the sailors, soldiers, airmen, and Marines who gave their lives for us all – brave men and women defined by their dedication to country and a call to serve.

For their selfless sacrifices, they ask only one thing in return: that we remember. Through us, their legacies remain unforgotten, and the values they fought to defend will live on forever.

At the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation, we’re committed to honoring those Marines who have made the ultimate sacrifice by providing the most lasting tribute we can offer: the promise of a bright and successful future for their children through education.

On behalf of the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation, our board of directors, staff, scholars, and Marine families everywhere, I wish you and your family all the best on this Memorial Day.

Semper Fidelis,

Lieutenant General George J. Trautman III USMC (Ret.)
Chairman
