“My dad, veteran Lance Corporal Jeffrey Frichner USMC, is disabled. Watching my father struggle with poor mental health and trauma from his military service inspired me to study psychology. A huge weight was lifted off my chest when I received the scholarship from the MCSF. The award has helped make it possible for me to major in Applied Psychology at NYU. On-campus I work with special education students, I have an internship working with the legally blind, and I volunteer at the local homeless shelter. I feel incredibly fortunate that I am able to study at the school of my dreams and I hope to express my gratitude by becoming a social worker. It is all the more meaningful to me that my education has been made financially possible because of the MCSF and my dad’s service.”

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.
