Memorial Day Message

25 May 2016

We want to wish all the CSCCa members a Happy Memorial Day and express our gratitude to all those who are serving and have served in the United States Armed Forces. Thank you for your sacrifice and all that you do to protect and serve. At the recent 2016 National Conference in Ft. Worth, Texas, CSCCa Board Member, Coach Ken Mannie, shared the United States Marine Corps Manifesto - Earned Never Given, in his Thursday afternoon presentation. We wanted to take this opportunity to share this Manifesto and say thank you to all those who serve.

The Marine Corps Manifesto

"We don't ask for anything more than everything you've got. And we will let you know when you've given it. You will be measured not by what you have, but how much of yourself you're willing to give. Not by your ability to pull yourself up, but your commitment to stand shoulder to shoulder. Not by your strength, but your honor. You will not be given anything other than the opportunity to prove that you have the courage to stand on an impenetrable line of warriors stretching 234 years. Our title is earned, never given. And what's earned is yours forever."

We hope you have a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day Weekend!
