Memorial Day Reflections

Every year on Memorial Day, our country pauses to remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect the freedoms we all enjoy each day. At the same time, we should thank the Veterans that served alongside their sisters and brothers and reflect on the sacrifice of the families they left behind. 

In this great Nation, we live freely, safe in the knowledge that these liberties are protected by those willing to voluntarily stand up and join our Nation’s military. At the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation, we work every day to honor the legacy of our Country’s Marines, Navy Corpsmen, and Religious Program Specialists by guaranteeing scholarships for their children to attend college or technical school. By ensuring their children can secure their own futures through the promise of higher education, we help to deliver the American promise their parents took an oath to defend.

On behalf of the Scholarship Foundation, our board of directors, staff, the thousands who support our mission, and Marine and Navy families across the Nation, I wish you and your family a meaningful and safe Memorial Day. Never forget.
