What inspires you to give to The Travis Manion Foundation?

The Travis Manion Foundation honors and advances the ideal of selfless service that Travis exemplified. The millennial generation, especially the men and women who have served in harm’s way since 2001, are the future leaders of our country. We give in order to support their aspirations. We give to enable the Travis Manion Foundation to inspire and educate them, so that they can fulfill their leadership potential.


What motivates you to stay involved?

We are motivated by the enormous sacrifices of all the warriors who have trained for combat and fought for our country. Many have paid the ultimate price to keep us, their fellow Americans, safe—and our freedoms intact. We owe them a debt that never can be repaid.


Do you have a message to share?

If you are unable to serve in the armed services, or you don’t feel called to contribute your talents in that way, find another avenue to give back to America. Discover and do your part ensure that the United States remains “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.”
