On Memorial Day, our Nation takes a moment to reflect on the service and sacrifices made by those who gave all for our country. We live, free and secure, because of those who stepped forward to protect the liberties and blessings of America. We also must pause to remember the families they left behind, and all our Veterans who served alongside them. Thanks to all of them.
While we remember these servicemembers and their sacrifices, we can continuously work to honor their legacies. The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation aims to perpetuate the legacy of our fallen Marines and Sailors by educating their children and providing scholarships for them to attend college or technical school. Their parents made it their life’s work to protect and serve our Nation, and we are honored to ensure their children’s prosperity through higher education.
On behalf of the Scholarship Foundation, our board of directors, staff, and Marine and Navy families everywhere, I wish you and your family a meaningful and safe Memorial Day.
General Robert B. Neller USMC (Ret.)
