Memorial Day Reflection

On Memorial Day, we pause to remember those who served our Nation and sacrificed all to protect the liberties of every American. Because of these brave men and women, we go to sleep each night secure – knowing our country is protected by those who are willing to put the preservation of our Nation before their own. Today, surrounded by our own families and the blessings of America, we pause to honor them.

Each day, the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation works to perpetuate the legacy of fallen Marines and Navy Corpsmen by guaranteeing scholarships for their children to attend college or technical school. These selfless servicemembers made the ultimate sacrifice to secure freedom for all Americans, and it is our honor to help their children secure their own futures through the promise of higher education.

On behalf of the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation, our board of directors, staff, and Marine families everywhere, I hope you and your family have a meaningful and safe Memorial Day.
