Help Give Back To Our Fallen Heroes and Their Families

Help Give Back To Our Fallen Heroes and Their Families

Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) empowers veterans and the families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations. “Operation Legacy” brings veterans, families of fallen heroes and TMF supporters together through local service projects. During Operation Legacy, TMF unites communities through a common cause, with volunteers living the “If Not Me, Then Who…” mantra and leading a movement of character, leadership and selfless service. From April 20th-29th, they will host more than 50 “Operation Legacy” service projects across the country. Operation Legacy is the fastest growing movement to unite communities across the nation to create positive change, while honoring the legacies of our fallen heroes.

“Operation Legacy project leaders and volunteers exemplify the strength of America’s national character, by bringing together veterans, families of the fallen, and inspired civilians, to unite for the common cause of making a positive impact in their own communities,” says Amy Looney, wife of Lt. (SEAL) Brendan Looney and Vice President of TMF. “By bringing communities together to serve in honor of our fallen heroes, we are not just keeping their legacy alive, we passing their values along to the next generation of leaders.“

Specifically in the New York City Community, volunteers will be gathering at The Drama Book Club for Story Pirates. There they will be participating in Story Pirates story love, where volunteers will provide personal feedback to the kids’ stories.

This project was organized by community members, who serve as local volunteer project leader for TMF. Those interested in volunteering for this upcoming project can register or learn more information by visiting www.oplegacy.com/NYC. Those unable to attend this project can also start their own project by signing up as a Virtual Volunteer, or to see examples of how other projects have impacted other communities, click here.

Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) empowers veterans and families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations. In 2007, 1st Lt. Travis Manion (USMC) was killed in Iraq while saving his wounded teammates. Today, Travis’ legacy lives on in the words he spoke before leaving for his final deployment, “If Not Me, Then Who…” Guided by this mantra, veterans continue their service, develop strong relationships with their communities, and thrive in their post-military lives. As a result, communities prosper and the character of our nation’s heroes live on in the next generation.
