We’re looking for a FEW GOOD SPONSORS AND GOLFERS for the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation’s 14th Annual Capital Area Golf Tournament.

The proceeds from this year’s tournament will support the “Dark Horse” Memorial Scholarship in honor of 1stLt Robert Kelly and the Marines from 3/5 “Dark Horse” who proudly served in this Battalion. Robert M. Kelly. Robert was killed by a roadside bomb during a foot patrol in Helmand Province Afghanistan on November 9, 2010. At the time of his death, Robert was assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, I Marine Expeditionary Force based in Camp Pendleton. It was his third combat deployment in what was already a distinguished military career.

His personal service awards include the Purple Heart, Combat Action Ribbon, Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Humanitarian Service Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal and Sea Service Deployment Ribbon.

Organized by friends and family who knew him best, each year the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation, dedicates its Capital Area Golf Tournament to Robert’s memory. For more than 6 years, funds raised through this event have provided thousands in scholarships to the children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen.

Each year, thanks to your support, Robert’s legacy of Honor, Courage and Commitment is at work in the lives of thousands of Marines sons and daughters receiving these need-based scholarships.
