I wanted to take some time to day to write about an organization my wife Beverly has been very involved in for many years now and one she got involved due to her sister Barb's close relationship with the family.
 
The Travis Manion Foundation was started in honor of 1st Lt Travis Manion....I know I cannot write anything as beautifully as the following from the wed site, please read and visit the site....I know you will be moved as we were and want to be involved....
 

Who is the young man whose life has inspired others to serve?

Travis Joseph Lemma Manion was born Nov. 19, 1980 in Camp Lejeune, NC, to an active duty Marine family. After settling in Doylestown, PA, Travis went on to LaSalle College High School where his strong leadership qualities set him apart both athletically and academically. He was an all-league standout in wrestling, football and lacrosse, a member of five championship teams, and an All-American wrestler. Travis was best known as a motivating and popular figure to his classmates. It was for these traits that Travis was awarded the Hal Selvey, Jr. Memorial Award for Unselfish Dedication and Leadership. This combination of leadership, athleticism, and academic achievement opened the door to his appointment to the United States Naval Academy.
