Our uniformed men and women believe in and defend this statement on a daily basis.

Our brother, son, and friend-Corporal Christopher Kelly Willis-was the embodiment of military spirit and dedication, and we aim to preserve his memory by providing college scholarships to children whose parent was killed or permanently disabled in a combat zone.
