April 4 - Oasis Conference Center - Loveland, OH Doors: 5 p.m. / Program: 6 p.m. Reservations by March 15: PO Box 942 Milford, OH 45150 Let Us Never Forget Scholarship Fundraiser. We honor the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice In the Global War on Terror. The parents of the FALLEN choose the schools and recipients of these scholarships given in memory of their loved one. On April 9, 2004, SSG Matt Maupin was captured when insurgents attacked the convoy Matt's unit was protecting. Keith Maupin, his father, started the Yellow Ribbon Support Center soon after Matt's capture. The center sent thousands of care packages overseas with baseball card size images of Matt, hoping to get them into the hands of as many service members as possible in Iraq and Afghanistan. This would help them remember Matt's face and encourage all to be on constant lookout for signs that might lead to his return. His remains were found March 21, 2008 and returned home on April 26, 2008. Every year this event is held in April to commemorate the date, April 9th, (Good Friday) Matt was captured. We honor 107 Tri state area young men and woman. The parents must request their child be honored by a scholarship. The amount varies depending on how much money is raised each year. Let Us Never Forget Scholarship Fund has awarded hundreds of scholarships totaling over $750K in the past 14 years, ensuring our fallen heroes who were engaged in the Global War on Terror are never forgotten. We are 100% volunteers and donors that make this happen.
