A little background on the foundation:
Warriors for Freedom, Brothers Forever
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.
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.
