Travis Manion and Brendan Looney were best friends and roommates at the United States Naval Academy. Today, they now lay side by side at Arlington National Cemetery.
Travis, a Marine who was killed in action on April 29, 2007 was awarded the Silver Star and Bronze Star with Valor for his heroic actions. Navy SEAL Brendan Looney, a true American hero and patriot, was killed in Afghanistan on September 21, 2010.
Since 2007, the Travis Manion Foundation has participated as an official charity partner of the Marine Corps Marathon and 10K. In 2010 the team name changed from Team Travis, to Team Travis and Brendan. Participants run to raise funds and awareness for the Travis Manion Foundation as well as honor the sacrifices of Travis, Brendan and all of our American heroes.
The Travis Manion Foundation inspired by Travis’ words “If not me, then who…” has an overriding goal of Honoring the Fallen by Challenging the Living. The mission is to assist our nation’s Veterans and families of Fallen Heroes. We will continue the service to community and country exemplified by these Fallen Heroes and Veterans. In the spirit of the Fallen, we will foster strength of mind and body to create a generation of future leaders.
The foundation has three main programs in which they accomplish their mission:
The foundation also "Continues His Mission" through Scholarships, Greif Seminars in partnership with TAPS, and service projects.
The selflessness and spirit of service that Travis and all of our Fallen Heroes had continue to be the driving force behind the foundation. To learn more about the foundation, it's programs, and events please visit www.TravisManion.com
