JULY 2020     MMA EVENT CALENDAR

Spearheaded by MMA Board Member Kevin O’Brien, it is a terrific introduction to the Marines’ Memorial mission and Club, and a call to veterans and others in the Bay Area to discover and join us.

We are so proud of what we have here; proud of our dedicated staff members who keep it running smoothly through good times and bad; and especially proud of you, our members, whose support continues to sustain our mission. THANK YOU!

Introducing Leading from the Front

Our Marines’ Memorial Club might be a bit quieter these days, but our tradition of celebrating the honor, courage and leadership of our military continues. The house is still standing strong, but it’s not a home without you and our signature programs that highlight these traditions. Join us for a virtual return to Marines’ Memorial with our new series, “Leading from the Front.” We’re looking forward to seeing you here in person in the near future.

Right now, many of us are looking towards our military and civilian leaders for strength and inspiration. Marines’ Memorial is dedicated to doing our part to constructively engage in conversations with difference-makers consistent with our values and our mission to honor the legacy of military service.

Our new program, “Leading from the Front,” is a digital series that will take a look at timeless leadership lessons learned. Our series launch is an interview with Sandy Alderson, Lieutenant Colonel, USMC (Ret), former NY Mets General Manager and current Special Advisor to the Oakland Athletics. In the interview, Sandy talks about his careers in the Corps and in baseball, and gives his frank thoughts on the leadership issues facing Major League Baseball’s decision on when and how to play ball again.

Leading from the Front

We hope you enjoy this first video in the series and find that it transports you back to your Club, even for a few moments.  Please share this opportunity with those who might be interested in participating in our 70-year-old tradition.

This video was made possible due to the generous support of our members and donors.  We would like to thank Mr. Kevin O’Brien for his recent contribution kick-starting this effort.  If you would like to support this series, please consider making a donation to help us produce more of these special presentations. Keep an eye out for our next installment of “Leading from the Front.”

Remembering D-Day

An item from a fellow veterans organization in the Bay Area.

D-Day

76 years ago today… 

On June 6, 1944, D-Day, some 156,000 American, British and Canadian forces landed on five beaches along the coast of France’s Normandy region. There would be eleven more months of hard fighting in Europe before the Nazis were defeated, but the D-Day invasion gave the Allies the success they needed to start that fight.

 

Today we commemorate the estimated 4,414 Allied soldiers, Marines, sailors, airmen and coast guardsmen who died on D-Day.  We remember the men who risked their lives, not to conquer, but to liberate.

 

In 2019, Marines’ Memorial celebrated the 75th Anniversary of D-Day by showcasing three speakers, Brigadier (Retd.) Roderick Macdonald MBE, Dr. Seth Givens, and Mr. Phil Gioia, who retold first-hand accounts of June 6th both from the Allied and German perspectives.  If you have not seen it, or wish to watch it again, you can find the video on MarinesMemorial.org or on our YouTube page.

“In all of the far-flung operations of our Armed Forces, the toughest job has been performed by the average, easy-going, hard-fighting young American who carries the weight of battle on his own young shoulders. It is to him that we and all future generations must pay grateful tribute.”
-Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Marines’ Memorial’s Commitment to Equality

Dear Members and Supporters of Marines’ Memorial,

 

The Marines’ Memorial Association and Foundation exists to commemorate and honor the service and sacrifices of that diverse group of men and women who have selflessly supported and defended our Constitution, freedoms and our way of life. Recent events have caused us to search our conscience and question whether we are all treated fairly, equally and with the respect we deserve in the eyes of not only the law, but in our society as a whole. Marines’ Memorial is committed to actively engaging in constructive conversations and actions to ensure inclusivity, fairness and equality for all, a cornerstone of our values and mission of honoring the legacy of all military service. We recognize that as a nation we need to pause, put our differences aside, have the difficult conversations and seek to understand other perspectives. Together we will fight against racism, hate, inequality and violence to achieve what our forefathers envisioned: liberty and justice for all.

 

Sincerely, and Semper Fidelis,

Rick Hartnack
