The Corwin family has established the foundation in honor of our brother, son, and comrade, Captain Scott Corwin, West Point class of 1999. As an Army family, we have learned the dedication and sacrifices of the men and women in the military. In that regard, part of the foundation's mission is to help those who are serving, and have served in the past.
Our help will be broad in scope, but we will be focusing on, but not limiting to, integrating those with extraordinary needs and talents back into the American community. We will dedicate ourselves to giving back to those who have given so much for all of us.
The Captain Scott Corwin Foundation is proud to team up with Gerry Rush, aka RangerRush, and provide Christmas gifts for the children of wounded warriors recovering at the Brooke Army Medical Center. Mr. Rush is a retired Army Ranger who lives in San Antonio and visits Brooke several times a week, providing morale and care for the military patients there.
He recently sent out a message asking help in his effort to provide presents for the children of the recovering warriors. He told us that the more than 500 patients at Brooke have over 300 children living in the family quarters supporting their loved ones and waiting for their recovery. Falling short of his goal last year to provide at least one gift for every child, the Captain Scott Corwin Foundation is making sure that won't happen this Christmas, and is sending a check for $1,000 for gifts to Ranger Rush for the kids.
The Foundation is so very proud to make sure Santa pays a visit to the children of our heroes at Brooke, and we salute Gerry Rush for his support of the men and women recovering there. He has shown that Rangers do indeed Lead the Way. Merry Christmas to all the families at Brooke - we wish you all Godspeed.
The Captain Scott Corwin Foundation has developed a simple but affective way to say 'Thank You' to our military men and women.
Officers and Board Members of the Foundation have been supplied with our ATY's, Airport Thank You Cards with a gift card inside. The cards say "On behalf of the Captain Scott Corwin Foundation, a small token of our appreciation for what you do for all of us".
Included with the Thank You Card is a $10 gift voucher for a food vendor within the airport where they can get a meal. As we travel the country, we have been greeting uniformed members of the military, thanking them for their service, and giving them our ATY's. The feedback from those who have received these Thank You's has been extremely positive.
If you're in the military, look for the ATY's from our Foundation members. If you'd like to help us with our Airport Thank You Program, go to our 'Donation' page and contribute your $10 for an ATY for our military men and women.
The Captain Scott Corwin Foundation continues to pursue funding for a new Soldier and Family Assistance Center building adjacent to the Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas.
Judith Markelz, who runs the present SFAC, says the new center is crucial to morale and speeding up the healing process. This center will provide a specific place where relatives of wounded warriors can obtain information as well as updates on their loved ones, and a place to come to. It also provides a 'living room' for those on an outpatient basis, but still need continuing care for their wounds.
Help us support the passage of the Captain Scott Corwin Armed Forces Protection Act, HR 3884, which will make it a federal and capital offense to murder any member of the armed forces.
The Captain Scott Corwin Foundation is proud to announce that we are now a member of the America Supports You family. America Supports You was created by the Department of Defense to unify groups across the country dedicated to helping our men and women in uniform.
The recognition by America Supports You of the Corwin Foundation’s efforts is truly an honor for us, and we will continue to support those who sacrifice so much for all of us.

The Captain Scott Corwin Foundation was proud to have as their guests 18 patients from the Brooke Army Medical Center at the 2007 Army/Navy game December 1st in Baltimore Maryland. The soldiers boarded their Southwest Airlines flight Friday morning and arrived in Baltimore around noon. A snack of hamburgers and hot dogs awaited them at the Airport Marriott, where they stayed for the weekend. It was off to the ESPN Zone in the Inner Harbor for a buffet dinner. The BAMC patients were guests of the West Point Society of Annapolis' pre-game tailgate at Camden Yards Saturday morning.
Enjoying the food and refreshments with the more than 2,000 Association of Graduates of West Point attending the party, the soldiers were greeted by a surprise visit by Brigadier General Patrick Finnegan, Dean of the Academic Board at West Point. Also surprising the BAMC guests was Mr. Pete Dawkins, Heisman Trophy winner. Perhaps the highlight of the weekend for the wounded warriors was being introduced individually to the entire tailgate crowd where they received a well-deserved rousing ovation.
It was off to M & T Bank Stadium to watch the Black Knights fall again to the Midshipmen. Dinner after the game, and a Sunday brunch before they left rounded out the weekend. The Foundation would like to thank Mr. David Smith of the Airport Marriot for providing a wonderful stay, Mr. Bill Taylor of the West Point Society of Annapolis for being such a gracious host, Carol Bush from West Point for all of your help, SSGT Kristen Dickerson for providing her leadership during the weekend and Michele Kyle and everyone at Southwest Airlines for treating our guests with such warmth and respect.
The Foundation would like to thank our guests for making our weekend such an enjoyable experience. We are so proud of each and every one of you, and we were honored to provide this weekend for you.
The Foundation is proud to announce that Jon Goldsher is the recipient of the 2007 Captain Scott Corwin Award. This is the second annual presentation of the award given to a Hinsdale South High School football team member for athletics, scholarship, citizenship and leadership, and includes a $2,000 scholarship.

Scott Corwin was a 1995 graduate of Hinsdale South High School in Darien, Illinois and co-captained the 1994 football team. The Foundation would like to congratulate Jon, and thank head coach Alex Bitto for his help continuing the Captain Scott Corwin Award at Hinsdale South.
