The Travis Manion Foundation
(0)
The Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) empowers veterans and the families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations.

Growing up in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, Travis Manion was known for his strong leadership qualities, athleticism and academic achievement.

Upon graduation from the United States Naval Academy, he decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and was awarded a commission into the United States Marine Corps. After finishing at the top of his class at The Basic School in Quantico, VA, Travis was assigned to 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, I Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Pendleton, Calif with whom he deployed to Iraq for his first tour of duty.

In 2006, Travis was selected, as an experienced Iraq War veteran from 1st Recon Battalion, to become a part of a military transition team (MiTT) with 10 other Marines that would train and partner with an Iraqi Army Battalion in Fallujah, Iraq.

On April 29, 2007, 1st Lt. Travis Manion, his fellow Marines and Iraqi Army counterparts were ambushed while searching a suspected insurgent house in the Al Anbar province of Iraq. Leading the counterattack against the enemy forces, Travis was fatally wounded by an enemy sniper while aiding and drawing fire away from his wounded teammates.

Travis Manion made the ultimate sacrifice that day. His selfless actions allowed every member of his patrol to survive.

For his actions, Travis was awarded the Silver Star and Bronze Star with Valor. His legacy continues to grow through the work of TMF, inspiring people to live with character and make an impact by serving others.

We can all remember Travis by carrying on the values that defined his life.
Tradecraft
(0)
For many veterans, I would advise rotational programs over traditional graduate school. For a short amount of time, you can shift through an organization and start understanding the different functional areas that exist within an industry.

Tradecraft is a start-up prep course. If you are interested in tech, this option could be better for you than an MBA. Tradecraft is a 12-week tech immersion program. They have tracks that include sales, business, development, and user experience. The reason why I think this can be a better option than an MBA is that since it is only 12 weeks, there is much less of an opportunity cost. The price tag is also much lower than an MBA. Also, if you know you want to go into start-ups, this can be a much more targeted approach.

Service to School
(0)
Service to School is a free resource to help veterans identify and get in to their ideal college or grad school program. One of the things I love about Service to School is that they connect members of the Armed Forces to a student who is currently at their school of choice. This allows the service member to get on-the-ground feedback about the school, as well as help with their resume, application, and interview. If you are considering education after your military service, Service to School is an incredible resource to consider.
