Character Does Matter

The Travis Manion Foundation's Character Does Matter program honors the fallen and challenges the living by delivering dynamic, inspiring presentations to emerging leaders. One of the foundation’s three major programs, Character Does Matter is inspired by Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion and thousands of fallen American heroes, honored through the program's innovative “If Not Me, Then Who…” Service Challenge.
