Honor Our Heroes
Dear Michael Barbour,
Home.
It’s a place that looks, sounds and smells a little different for each of us, but the meaning of the word is the same: safety and belonging.
Right now, there are thousands of service members who willingly gave up the peace of their home to protect a cause bigger than themselves. Leaving home, family and friends is hard enough during normal times, but being in an unfamiliar place during such uncertain times? Our troops are tough, but that can take its toll.
As most of you know all too well, when you deploy, you anticipate there will be challenges. But our service members couldn’t have anticipated COVID-19, extended deployments, quarantines, and being away from their families during an unprecedented time for our Nation.
We take care of our own every day of the year, but these deployed men and women need our support more than ever this year. That’s why this Day of the Deployed, we’re showing our appreciation and helping boost their morale. Can you help us pay it forward?
pay it forward
Your gift of $10 to $250 (or more!) allows us to build and send Care Packages with multiple sundry items such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, shaving cream, deodorant, and much more. Due to COVID, we were unable to send our usual summer shipment, so we plan to send even more this holiday season.
A care package can’t replace the warm embrace of a loved one. But it’s a tangible sign that we are grateful for all of our service members’ choices to give up the one place we all love: home.

Semper Fidelis,
Jan C. Huly

President & CEO
P.S. No one knows the importance of supporting deployed troops better than my successor, Lieutenant General Michael Rocco, who was Active Duty as recently as last month! Stay tuned to learn more about him!
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 development@marinesmemorial.org for more information.
