I am a Gunnery Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps and I asking for donations to help to take my Platoon to Washington DC. Most of these young Marines never had the opportunities to visit much of the country they are all willing to lay their life down for to defend. I would love to be able to give them the chance to see our National Capitial as a cultural and educational experience. I have looked into taking these Marines to Washington DC but we alone will not be able to afford the trip. Each one of my Marines would benefit from any size donation you may be able to make to help lower the cost of the trip per Marine. This maybe a chance of a life time for the Marines.
