Semper Fi Fund Founder and CEO Karen Guenther: Honorary Marine

Washington, DC - It’s difficult to overstate how much of a privilege it is to be named an Honorary Marine.

“I receive requests all the time for people to be named Honorary Marines,” said 35th Commandant of the Marine Corps General James F. Amos. “They send stacks of papers and binders making the case for why someone should receive the honor. It’s not a title that’s given with very much frequency.” Read the rest of this entry »

Horsemanship offers veterans relief from the traumas of combat.

In 2002, Chris Lowe was a teenager from a small Texas town, a 19-year-old community college student with an ambition to serve his country. Following a family tradition of military service, he enlisted in the U.S. Marines. Two years later, he was in Iraq, on a combat deployment in the chaotic hotbed of Fallujah, providing security for an explosives disposal team, when an enemy mortar exploded just feet away from him.

“I still don’t feel like I did that much,” Nathan told the Midtown Raleigh News in 2013, “but everyone keeps saying that I did. So, I’m starting to believe them, I guess.”

“My grandfather served in the Army,” he said. “I grew up with him talking about that, and it really interested me. As I got older, I saw that the Marine Corps was the most challenging branch, so I enlisted right out of high school.”

“I wanted to do something I could be proud of,” Jose continues. “I couldn't think of anything better than the Marine Corps: It represented honor and courage, and that's what I wanted.” Read the rest of this entry »
