Why The Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund?
The Johnny Mac Soldiers Fund is a 501.c.3 nonprofit organization with mission of family—taking care of veterans and family members of the fallen by giving back through education. This organization focuses on providng college scholarships for children who have lost a military parent in the line of duty. A group of my West Point classmates organized this fund to honor our classmate, COL John McHugh, who was Killed In Action in Afghanistan in May 2010, and left behind a wife and 5 children.
Since its founding in 2014, the Fund has awarded nearly $6 million in college scholarships to children of the fallen and to veterans.
