"To retain the title of “world’s greatest fighting force,” the Marine Corps must continue to invest in leadership development and education so that Marines in unfamiliar overseas environments are armed with the problem-solving skills they need to think creatively, act decisively, accomplish the mission and come home safely. Because appropriated government funding is not sufficient to achieve these ends, I find serving on the Board of the Marine Corps University Foundation, which brings the “power of the private sector” to bear on the Marine Corps’ most pressing educational needs, to be a true privilege."
