AUGUST 2019     MMA EVENT CALENDAR

This Month

When we ask members what they value most about belonging to the Marines’ Memorial, our educational component often tops the list. We are proud to enlighten not only our members, but also the greater community, about the sacrifices of veterans and the pressing issues of the day. Many events are offered free of charge, and we can’t do this without the generosity of our supporters. Underwriting an event is a win-win-win: for your Club, for the community, and for your family, company or foundation, which receives a tax deduction and widespread recognition. Interested? Find out more here or email Development Director Chelsea LeonardThank you for your support!

Honor those who served this 4th of July
Dear Michael Barbour,

Last week, we set an ambitious goal to raise $1776 EVERY SINGLE DAY!

And thanks to patriotic Americans like you — we did it.

That means we can serve even more active duty and veteran Marines and members of ALLmilitary branches.

Because everyone may not have had an opportunity to participate, we decided to extend the campaign and grow this movement of support and gratitude for those who proudly protect our cherished freedoms, way of life and amazing Country.

If you recently made your gift, thank you! If not, now’s your chance to help us raise an additional $1776.

Keep The Good Going
Your support directly impacts our military heroes.

You make sure those who have fallen are remembered and their families are lifted up. You provide educational scholarships to veterans and their children. You send care packages around the world to keep our troops in good spirits. You honor their service every time you make a gift.

So let’s keep the good going and raise another $1776 today.

Make your gift now and know that you’re making a difference for our service men and women, their families and our veterans.

Sincerely,

Jan C. Huly
Lieutenant General, USMC (Ret)
President and CEO

Parades. Flags. Fireworks. Let’s not forget military heroes who protect it all.

And another item from a fellow veterans organization in the San Francisco Bay Area.


Honor those who served this 4th of July
Dear Michael Barbour,

As we enjoy the fireworks bursting overhead this evening, let’s not forget that every day, men and women proudly answer the call to protect our cherished way of life. And for them, the sights and sounds of freedom are very different.

Weapons firing, bombs blasting, engines roaring … Love of Country comes at a very high price.

To honor their service to our Nation, we’ve been challenging our patriotic members and supporters like you to help us raise $1776 EVERY DAY this week!

I Accept the Challenge
Without our brave service members, there would be no independence. That’s why we celebrate their sacrifices every single day of the year through programs that Commemorate, Educate and Serve.

In fact, we’ve just sent out a huge shipment of care packages to our troops overseas, providing a little bit of home and a little bit of comfort while they’re deployed during the holiday.

But we can’t do these things without your support.

So before you celebrate our great Country today with your family and friends, please celebrate our military heroes by making a gift and help us reach our $1776 goal.

Sincerely,

Jan C. Huly
Lieutenant General, USMC (Ret)
President and CEO

So will you help meet the challenge?

Thank you, and Happy Independence Day.

316 out of 1,195 crew members survived the USS Indianapolis sinking and aftermath…

Indianapolis: The True Story of the Worst Sea Disaster in U.S. Navy History and the Fifty-Year Fight to Exonerate an Innocent Man
Meet the Authors Lynn Vincent and Sara Vladic
Tuesday, 9 July, 2019 at 6pm
Marines’ Memorial Club – 609 Sutter Street (at Mason), San Francisco

After delivering crucial parts of the nuclear weapon dropped on Hiroshima, the USS Indianapolis was torpedoed by the Japanese on July 30, 1945 and sank within twelve minutes; survivors faced exposure, dehydration, saltwater poisoning, and shark attacks until they were found 4 days later.  Only 316 of the 1,195 crewmen aboard survived, making this the greatest loss of life at sea from a single ship in U.S. Navy history.

In their riveting recreation of the disaster and its aftermath, Vincent, co-author of books including Same of Kind of Different as Me, and Vladic, a documentary filmmaker, draw on original research and interviews with 107 survivors and witnesses to chronicle the crew’s long fight to exonerate their skipper. Captain Charles McVay III was court-martialed for the sinking and, though he was later exonerated, the authors trace a chain of systemic oversights and errors that distorted the true picture of what happened.

Many of us are familiar with USS Indianapolis from the movie Jaws (watch that famous speech again HERE) but there is so much to the story.  Please join us on July 9th to hear Vladic and Vincent speak about this unbelievable disaster.

This is a free event.  Click HERE to RSVP
