“There are many great organizations out there working to make a difference in the lives of those to whom we all owe so much,”
“Our vision is to inspire and activate everyone with the generous spirit of those who serve,”
said James Brobyn, Executive Director of the the Travis Manion Foundation. “Imagine veterans in communities all across the country instilling strong core values and a service mindset in our young people: local communities would benefit; veterans would find a renewed purpose, realize their potential, and continue their service at home. Most importantly, veterans would be positioned as leaders and assets – not as charity cases. That is why it is such an honor to partner with the Hillier Ignite Foundation. Our core values and goals are aligned. We view our veterans, their families, and our youth as pivotal to the future success of our country.”
