This Month

June is the month for dads, grads (congrats to Guest Services team member Alex, at left!), and the sweet anticipation of summer adventures ahead. Here at Marines’ Memorial, it’s also the time to focus on filling CARE PACKAGES for our troops who are far from home and the carefree dreams of summer. When you sponsor a care package, you let them know they are remembered and appreciated. Please be generous: donate now and help us make this summer’s shipment the best and biggest yet. Thank you!
