Memorial Day: Honoring our Supply Corps
Memorial Day: Honoring our Supply Corps
On this Memorial Day, the Foundation honors our Supply Corps men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our great Nation. The Foundation is particularly proud of our Memorial Scholarship program which provides college tuition assistance for the minor children of Supply Corps officers who die while on active duty. The Foundation contributes $10,000 to establish a scholarship fund for each of the minor children of a Supply Corps officer who dies while on active duty. Since 2001, 26 Supply Corps officers have been killed while on active duty, leaving behind 45 dependent children. We are a Community committed to service. Thank you for supporting your Foundation and helping to "take care of our own".
