Help us give the true meaning back to Memorial Day

An item from the Marines’ Memorial Association & Foundation.


Even though more than a decade has passed since Mike Anderson lost his son, not a day goes by when he doesn’t think about him. After two and a half years as a FAST Company Marine, Corporal Mike Anderson Jr. was killed in a gunfight during the Battle of Fallujah on December 14, 2004. He was just 21 years old.

As you know, our mission is to pay tribute to service members like Mike Jr., who gave their lives for our Country, and you are an integral part of accomplishing that mission.

Honor Their Sacrifice
For Gold Star families and parents like Mike Anderson, the Marines’ Memorial Club is a sacred space. Thanks to partners like you, we have created a Living Memorial where families can gather and reminisce, tell the stories of those who are no longer with them, and honor the sacrifices that gave us our freedoms.

Ensure that their memories live on. Your contribution in the following amounts will help us provide …
A piece of hospitality for Active Duty members
One care package for our troops overseas
Commemorations, including our annual USMC Birthday Ball
Contribute Now

We’re proud to say that 100% of your contribution will go directly to helping honor service members past and present and easing the burden for those currently serving and their families.

Over the last 70 years, the Marines’ Memorial has impacted tens of thousands of veterans, active military service members, military families and their communities. Will you help us continue this proud tradition by contributing online today?
