Since 2004, the Memorial Scholarship Foundation has awarded 75 scholarships totaling $85,000 to relatives of the 47th Infantry Regiment Vietnam veterans. We believe the best way to honor our fallen Brothers is to help students like these deserving young men and women to reach their goals and live life to its fullest potential.
