Keeping Good Company ...


On September 23, 2009, the Laurus Foundation was invited to attend the 5th Annual MCLEF Foundation Dinner. A big Thank You to Anna Sherony from the Disabled Patriots Fund for extending the invitation to Yuriy and Aimee Zmysly and Yuriy’s brother, Andriy.


MCLEF, the Marine Corps — Law Enforcement Foundation, renders financial assistance to children of Marines or Federal law enforcement personnel who were killed on duty or died under extraordinary circumstances while serving our country at home or abroad. When a child of a United States Marine is afflicted with a physical or mental disability and requires special medical equipment or tutoring, the MCLEF Foundation may grant financial assistance to that family if their personal insurance does not cover the complete cost of treatment for this child.


MCLEF also provides scholarships for these children for their higher education.



In a special ceremony (see video above), Cpl. Yuriy Zmysly was awarded his NCO (Non-commissioned Officer) Sword by the Commandant of the Marine Corps, General James T. Conway and Sgt. Maj. Carlton Kent. Also present (seen below with Yuriy in civilian clothes) was General Peter Pace, USMC Ret., former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff - the highest rank in the United States military.


The Laurus Foundation is proud to have played a small role in seeing that Cpl. Zmysly received the recognition he so richly deserves.
