Marty Goldman will be forever remembered as a person who embodied the espirit de corps. On February 3, 1964, Goldman voluntarily chose to serve his country by joining the United States Navy. In 1992, after 28 ½ years of dedicated service that included two tours in Vietnam, he retired as a Command Master Chief of the Naval Hospital aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and made his home in Jacksonville, North Carolina.
Marty, or “Mr. G” as he was known, transitioned from serving his country to serving his community. In 1990, he became a volunteer on the Marine FCU Supervisory Committee, later holding the position of the Chairman from 1992 to 1999. In 1993, he was elected to the Marine FCU Board of Directors and in 2005 became Chairman of the Board, serving honorably in that role until his passing.
Marty was passionate about Marine FCU’s partnership with the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation. For more than two decades he helped to foster a strong relationship with the organization, helping to fund dozens of scholarships over the years. In honor of Marty’s passion for Marine and Navy families, Marine FCU is proud to establish the Marty Goldman Memorial Scholarship which will provide scholarships to the children of Marines and Navy Corpsmen for years to come.
