Marine Raider Bronze Memorial

Marine Raiders of WWII want to share their heritage with future generations by erecting a permanent bronze statue. We intend the statue consist of a Marine Raider, an Indian Code Talker, and War Dog with handler-all firsts for the U. S. military. We are well on our way collecting funds. Join with Marine Raiders and their friends who believe this statue is important to help build patriotism in future generations. Please honor these brave soldiers by making a donation of any amount.

Memorial Brick Program

There are two memorial brick programs in place: one to provide a brick for each of the 889 Marine Raiders killed in action (KIA) during WWII, and another that provides a naming opportunity for individuals to recognize themselves, relatives, or a friend they wish to honor. A donation of $125.00 will purchase a memorial brick with a laser inscribed Raider insignia or other logo or for $100.00 a brick without a logo. Bricks will line the walkway to the Marine Corps Raider Hall Museum in Quantico, Virginia.Click here to order a brick.

 

Vouza Scholarship Program

Honoring Jacob Vouza, a native from the Solomon Islands who was of unwavering assistance to the Raiders during WWII, a scholarship program was established in his name for native born children in the islands. Join us in expanding this scholarship program to additional deserving students. A $350.00 donation funds a year of school for one special student.

Raiders Return to Guadalcanal 2011

Some Raiders and their families visited Guadalcanal in 2011, with John Innes as our guide on the trip.

Thank you to Louie Marsh for allowing us to include his video of the Raiders' Trip back to Guadalcanal in 2011 on our channel.

 

Speaker Forums/Memorial Visitations

Many have only a cursory knowledge of WWII most often obtained through glorified television programming. Help us all better understand this aspect of our history by funding speaker forums and memorial visitations for those remaining Marine Raider veterans who protected our country and way of life in WWII. Your donation will provide an opportunity for these veterans, while they are still with us, to participate and share their personal history through first-hand accounts of their experiences.
