Reviews for Travis Manion Foundation
As a classmate to both Travis and Brendan, I am thrilled to see the positive effect TMF has had on the lives of veterans and their families. I am honored to have the opportunity to volunteer with such a great organization.
This nonprofit is making a difference in so many people's lives. Their impact touches the lives of the volunteers and of those who are being served. Everyone grows, and is blessed through this Nonprofit!
Their "If not me, then who..." motto has changed the way I think every day. What a wonderful way to honor the memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
I was privileged to take part in a mission expedition to Guatemala. In just over three days we changed the life of a family of 7 as we built them their first real home and provided them with an Ecostove. Survivors and family members on the trip were able to introduce their fallen soldier to the family through photographs and stories. They were able to continue the legacy of that person through their work and donations. Truly an amazing adventure!
I read the book "Brothers Forever" and I was acquainted with the Manion family through an acquaintance.
Shared Travis's story with my high school classes as the definition of a hero.
As a volunteer with the Travis Manion Foundation I have been given a tremendous opportunity to share my experiences with young men and women who we hope will become the next generation of leaders. The "Character Does Matter" program provides the tools with which to communicate the incredibly valuable messages the Foundation espouses. I am a better person for having become a volunteer with the Foundation and I am hopeful that the people I speak to are as positively impacted.
I've volunteered with the Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) for the past 3 years and have seen hundreds of fellow veterans and company volunteers participate in their events, including multiple 9/11 Heroes Runs and the Character Does Matter (CDM) program.
I became involved with TMF because I believed in the mission of the organization. As a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan), I had hoped to find an organization that allowed me to honor the sacrifices and memories of our fallen service and I found that with the Travis Manion Foundation. After reading Travis’ story in Tom Manion’s book, “Brothers Forever,” I was truly inspired.
Now, as a regular volunteer and corporate veteran employee resource group leader, I have been privileged to work with the Travis Manion Foundation leaders more closely and have been consistently impressed by their ability to connect with the needs of our fellow service members and their families.
My most meaningful experience with the Travis Manion Foundation has been with the CDM program, which is intended to inspire the next generation of leaders live with character and to serve the communities in which they live and work.
The Travis Manion Foundation is exceptional in the manner in which its people work with veterans and their families, and also work to develop the next generation of leaders. The 9/11 heroes runs are inspiring events.

I am a current client (MAP-V) and I am really impressed with the efforts they are making to educate and prepare the members of my group for success. If their mentoring-style transition assistance were available when I first got out of the military, I could have saved a lot of time. I wish there were more organizations like TMF.

Travis Manion Foundation has helped me so much. I have learned the skills I need to make it in the corporate world after I leave the military.
