APRIL 2022: FAMILY

Did you know that April is the Month of the Military Child? As such, it’s a time to honor the sacrifices made by our military families worldwide with an emphasis on the unique experience of dependent children of military members serving at home and overseas. On April 15th, we will celebrate Purple Up! For Military Kids Day and – with purple representing all branches of the US military – we encourage our members to wear purple to show support and gratitude to military children for their resilience and sacrifices.

 

What about your children? Perhaps they have traveled with you, or were they born after your service ended? Consider bringing your whole family to tour our wonderful Living Memorial. It’s a great way to strengthen our service-related bonds, reminisce, and help others understand the meaning of your service. We look forward to seeing you!

 

Your donation this month to the Living Memorial in honor of all military children will also ensure the displays live on for future generations.

 

Also of note for April:

> HAPPY 114th BIRTHDAY to the US Army Reserve!

> HAPPY 74th BIRTHDAY to the US Air Force Reserve!

THE DIFFERENCE YOUR SUPPORT MADE IN 2021

Thanks to our members and patriot supporters, the Marines’ Memorial mission continued to thrive through one the most difficult years in our 75-year history.

 

We are so proud of all that we accomplished last year and want you to share in that pride. See the difference your dollars are making, in our 2021 Annual Report.

VIRTUAL MEET THE AUTHOR with JONATHAN M. KATZ

All Marines learn about two-time Medal of Honor recipient Major General Smedley Butler. But do you know the whole story? We’re excited to bring you Jonathan M. Katz, author of Gangsters of Capitalism: Smedley Butler, the Marines, and the Making and Breaking of America’s Empire. In this video interview, Marines’ Memorial Foundation Chairman (and self-proclaimed capitalist) Barrie Graham talks with Katz about Butler’s storied military career and how he went from Quaker to Marine General to anti-war and anti-imperialist activist.
