Dear Michael Barbour,
Around Memorial Day, we’d normally be asking for your support to help us honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice, and keep their names alive for generations to come.
Well, things are certainly not “normal,” but we won’t let this challenging situation get the better of us.
In years past, many of you have made it a tradition to contribute to the Marines’ Memorial on Memorial Day. Though this year may be more difficult, there’s never been a better time to renew your commitment to our mission — to Commemorate, Educate and Serve our past and present heroes. You are absolutely vital to this mission.
In order to be “a tribute to those who have gone before” — a commitment we made back in 1946 — we need our most loyal supporters. We are doing everything we can to keep the Living Memorial going, but it takes ongoing support to ensure that the memories of our fallen service members will be protected in the future.
As one of the last military bastions in the Bay Area, our duty to educate the future is more important than ever. We have so many incredible events and commemorations planned for the upcoming year, and your continued support will help us return to service as quickly as possible.
Taking care of our own, both service members and our team, has always been at the forefront of what we do. Our service members and their families all across our great Nation are working around the clock to keep us safe and secure during this hard time. We want to be there for them when these challenging times pass.
This Memorial Day, I’m asking you to dig a bit deeper if possible, to help us ensure that we can continue to honor our fallen heroes and serve those putting their lives on the line for us.
Preserve The Legacy
Gratefully and Semper Fidelis,
Jan C. Huly
Lieutenant General, USMC (Ret)
President and CEO
P.S. Your ongoing support keeps alive the stories of our fallen heroes, and fuels programs that make a difference in the lives of veterans and their survivors. Will you please invest in our future by giving this Memorial Day?
If your giving is restricted to 501(c)3 organizations, please consider a gift to Marines’ Memorial Foundation, which supports all programs of the Marines’ Memorial Association. Please contact the Marines’ Memorial Development Department at for more information.
