THIS IS AN ON AIR AND ONLINE EVENT
Talk Radio 1210 WPHT is proud to partner with Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) of Doylestown, Pennsylvania, for the 5th Annual Radiothon. TMF strives to unite and strengthen communities by training, developing, and highlighting the role models that lead them. The team at TMF develops programs, training opportunities, and events designed to empower veterans and families of the fallen, and then inspire them to pass on their values to the next generation and the community at large.
The inspiration for the foundation comes from its namesake. Dedicated to 1stLt Travis Manion (USMC), who made the ultimate sacrifice for the safety of his patrol in 2007, TMF carries on the legacy of selfless service and leadership embodied by Travis and all those who have served, or continue to serve, our nation.
Before his final deployment to Iraq, Travis left us with a simple but powerful ethos. “If Not Me, Then Who...” Describes the sense of duty felt by service members and their families. Today it is a constant reminder for all of us to live with character and put the interests of others before our own.
Join us on for the 1210 WPHT Travis Manion Foundation Radiothon which takes place on Friday, March 25th from 6:00am to 6:00pm
On April 29, 2007, experienced Iraq war veteran from the 1st Recon Battalion, 1stlt Travis Manion, and his fellow Marines were ambushed while searching a suspected insurgent house in the Al Anbar province of Iraq. As he led the counterattack against the enemy forces, Travis was fatally wounded by an enemy sniper while aiding and drawing fire away from his wounded teammates. His courageous acts 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 make an impact by serving others.
