The CSC Rifle and Quill Foundation had an incredibly successful 1st quarter.

Our 501(c)3 tax-exempt application was received and is undergoing processing by the IRS. We should hear back from the IRS on approval by mid-July.

Thank you to all our generous “Battle Buddies” out there that help us raise more than $3800.

We are proud to have supported 11 Chadron State College students who accepted the challenge and successfully complete the 2013 Bataan Memorial Death March.

We have $1,000 fund for immediate emergency relief should any of the Veterans on campus find themselves in a financial crisis.

We raised more than 375 pounds of food for the less-fortunate.

And we are not done yet! We are already planning bigger and better projects to support the Veterans at Chadron State College. The establishment of a Veterans Information Center on campus and the replacement of the CSC cannon are our next major projects.

1st Quarter Summary:
Income $3865.06.
Operational Expenses $453.90.
Funds spent supporting CSCRQF missions $2387.52.
Funds available for Veteran Emergency Relief $1000.00.
$3844.42 Spent (or available) supporting CSCRQF missions

The CSC Rifle and Quill Foundation is raising money to support 11 Chadron State College Students that will be participating in the 24th Annual Bataan Memorial Death March.

 

"The Bataan Memorial Death March is a challenging march through the high desert terrain of White Sands Missile Range, conducted in honor of the heroic service members who defended the Philippine Islands during World War II, sacrificing their freedom, health and, in many cases, their very lives." - http://www.bataanmarch.com/

 

Currently we have 8 students interested in completing the 26.2 mile course in the heavy catagory (carrying 35 lb packs), 1 student is interested in completing the 26.2 mile course in the light catagory, and 2 students interested in completing the 14.2 mile course.

 

Please consider supporting these students in participating in this grueling military history experience.

 

"The Bataan Memorial Death March honors a special group of World War II heroes. These brave soldiers were responsible for the defense of the islands of Luzon, Corregidor and the harbor defense forts of the Philippines. The conditions they encountered and the aftermath of the battle were unique. They fought in a malaria-infested region, surviving on half or quarter rations with little or no medical help. They fought with outdated equipment and virtually no air power. On April 9, 1942, tens of thousands of American and Filipino soldiers were surrendered to Japanese forces. The Americans were Army, Army Air Corps, Navy and Marines. Among those seized were members of the 200th Coast Artillery, New Mexico National Guard. They were marched for days in the scorching heat through the Philippine jungles. Thousands died. Those who survived faced the hardships of a prisoner of war camp. Others were wounded or killed when unmarked enemy ships transporting prisoners of war to Japan were sunk by U.S. air and naval forces." - http://www.bataanmarch.com/r09/history.htm
