Congratulations to Major Todd A. O’Brien, Commanding Officer, Headquarters Company, Headquarters Battalion, Marine Corps Base, Quantico. Major O’Brien, a 2011 alumnus of Marine Corps University Command and Staff College, is the lucky winner of the Foundation raffle held in conjunction with the Modern Day Marine Exposition. Major O’Brien’s prize, generously donated by 5.11 Tactical, includes a Rush12 Backpack, a Multicam Snap Back 5.11 Tactical cap, and a Collector’s 511/Strider SMF knife. These items can be viewed at www.511tactical.com.
The Foundation hosted a booth at Modern Day Marine, with the goals of introducing itself to Marines across Quantico, meeting industry leaders, and increasing funding for the Combined Federal Campaign, which kicks off later this Fall. The Foundation's CFC number is 11308.
The Marine Corps University Foundation ensures that Marine Leaders are ready to fight when they deploy into harm’s way.
The term “elite” comes to mind when describing the United States Marine Corps because for over 238 years, generations of Marines have been most ready when our nation is least ready. In today’s highly unpredictable and asymmetrical world, “readiness” requires that the mind of the Marine be constantly sharpened in anticipation of tomorrow’s threats to global security.
Reaching over 80,000 Marines, our Foundation fosters the cutting-edge thinking in warfighting, leadership development, and regional studies that enables Marines to grasp the essence of unfamiliar situations and accomplish their missions … safely & successfully.
We invite you to learn more about how you can help ensure that all Marines – officer & enlisted, active duty & reserve – are Armed With Insight.
