Thank You

As we approach memorial day this year, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of our volunteers and supporters. We’ve come a long way in the last 4 years and you have entrusted us with your time, your hard earned money, and most importantly your faith in our mission.

 

More Than a Slogan

The 03xx Foundation was started by infantry Marines who decided that the phrase, “once a Marine, always a Marine” was not just a slogan. It was founded by Marines who decided that the promise of Semper Fidelis did not end when their contact was up. It was founded by Marines who believe that “no Marine left behind”, means that no Marine will be left behind.

 

Real life is hard, and living up to these phrases is a lot harder than simply repeating them. Living up to our oath as Marines is a journey, not a destination and it requires all of us to contribute along the way.

 

Over the years the mission of 03xx has expanded to meet the needs of our brothers. It is our goal that no Marine finds himself facing his problems alone. We offer mentoring in career, finance and education. We assist Marines in navigating the VA and getting the benefits that they deserve. We provide financial assistance when necessary and long term solutions where possible.

 

Those of you have who have found your way here are already on that journey, and we thank you for joining with us.

Sincerely,

Gabe Castleberry

Executive Director
