Shortly after the death of 1st Lt. Travis Manion in Iraq on Apr. 29, 2007, the fallen Marine’s mother, Janet Manion, founded the Travis Manion Foundation with a goal of honoring the fallen by challenging the living. Until her death on Apr. 24, 2012, Janet worked tirelessly to help families of other fallen service members, veterans, and active duty troops. The words her son spoke before leaving for his second and final deployment to Iraq – “If Not Me, Then Who…” – inspired Janet every day as she built the Travis Manion Foundation from the ground up. With Travis and Janet’s legacies providing a source of daily inspiration, the Travis Manion Foundation’s staff and volunteers work day and night to assist members of the military community.
TRAVIS MANION FOUNDATION MISSIONS STATEMENT: THE FOUNDATION’S MISSION IS TO ASSIST OUR NATION’S VETERANS AND THE 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.
