U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command

Camp Lejeune, NC

Major Gen. Mark A. Clark, commanding general of U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command, and Sarah Christian, director of operations for the MARSOC Foundation cut a purple ribbon unveiling the MARSOC Foundation travel memorial wall, during ‘Honor the Fallen,’ a one-of-a-kind event, April 25, to honor all Marines, sailors and civilian Marines lost at home and abroad since MARSOC’s inception. The significance of the mobile memorial wall is to honor the Marines, sailors and civilian Marines who lost their lives while serving with MARSOC, as well as to honor their families, sharing their stories with as wide of an audience as possible. “The hope is that people will see the wall, reflect upon the service and sacrifice of these men & women and their families, and hopefully try to learn more about each of them,” said Christian.  “The MARSOC Foundation also hopes that it will remind the American public that even though military missions are not being talked about on the news, there are still brave men and women stationed throughout the world protecting our country and our freedom.”
