Marine Corps traditions includes educating our young people. In that spirit, the association works with groups like the Young Marines and Scouting groups.
An educational event has been added to our two annual ceremonies. The Colorado 1st High Plains Regiment of the Young Marines will select two outstanding Young Marines and their parents to attend a luncheon with the guest speaker prior to the ceremony. The Young Marines are introduced to the President of the Memorial and the guest speaker and they in turn learn about the Young Marine Program and the outstanding young people who participate.
Currently this is funded by the Women Marines Association, but other organizations are invited to fund the event which would include two seats at the table.
The Association also cooperates with Scouting organizations to assist individuals or groups in obtaining merit badges or completing special projects.
