A Soldier’s Child (ASC) Foundation was founded by Daryl J.W. Mackin after his neighbors lost their son, Marine Staff Sergeant Marcus Golczynski in Iraq on March 27, 2007. Many families of our fallen ask “did it matter and does anybody even care.”  Marcus wrote this in a letter to his family and friends before he was killed on the battlefield; “Stand beside us, because we would do it for you.” How do we do that now that they are gone? Care for their children that have been left behind.

Join us in this fight.

ASC holds numerous camps throughout the year for ASC kids that are ages 9-16 and for our PS23 mentors that are 18 and older. ASC also facilitates secondary/college scholarships for our ASC recipients in our program.
