ManTech Supports Marine Corps Heritage Foundation
ManTech has made significant contributions to the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation (MCHF), which preserves and promulgates the history, tradition, and culture of the Marine Corps and educates Americans in its virtue. MCHF employs the National Museum of the Marine Corps (NMMC) to help accomplish this mission. Opened on November 10 (Marine Corps' birthday) in 2006, the museum has welcomed over 2 million visitors. MCHF continues to raise the funds required to complete the museum by adding galleries to display Marine Corps operations in Grenada, Beirut, Desert Shield/Storm, Afghanistan, and Iraq. MCHF also funds historical research and educational programs.
