Dear Charlie Company,
My name is Reece Leleux, and I am a recipient of the Fogarty Scholarship in 2017.
I am honored to receive this scholarship and am grateful for the opportunities it
will provide me.
As a high school graduate in a mid-size Louisiana city, I saved for my education
and relied on academic scholarships that covered tuition, but not room and
board. I am a senior in Electrical Engineering at LSU- Baton Rouge and am to
graduate with my bachelor's degree in May, 2O18. l am currently involved in my
senior design course that requires much of my time and attention. The monies
provided by this scholarship help tremendously reduce the worry of paying fees in
addition to room and board.
Without a doubt, the scholarship will play a key role in achieving my educational
goals. Because of your generosity, the financial burden placed on me to pursue
my education is reduced, giving me more time to focus on my studies and current
Thank you for your investment in me and my future.

Dear Charlie Company,
Our names are Veronica and Sydney Ilg, we were two of the students that received the Fogarty Scholarship this year with help from the Haines family and all the Charlie Company veterans who have donated to the scholarship fund through the years. We want to sincerely thank you for the donation of the scholarship to help along our studies at Northern Kentucky University.
We have had the honor to attend one national (Washington D.C.)and five mini reunions, (Wayne Brown, John ‘Doc’ Berger, Bobby Jolliff, John Meadows & Bobby Goins) in the past with our parents. We have met many of those brave veterans associated with Charlie Company from the years 1969 - 1970. Always an honor to listen and watch the interaction of these brave men and their wives. As we were born late in my mom and dad’s life we have always received special treatment due to our young age from the veterans. Listening to Bobby Goins is always an adventure …
We also want to send our condolences but also our thanks for being proud americans and honoring the Fogarty name to help students succeed in their future endeavors. This will be a big help to our education as we take on college to become a teacher and doctor in the coming years.
We are very honored to have been apart of this scholarship opportunity, just as we are honored that our father was apart of this patriotic team. Again we want to thank you very much.
Veronica & Sydney Ilg
Dear C/3/22 Association,
I first want to thank you for your service and the many things you sacrificed in order to protect your country. Your bravery and courage during Vietnam is a reminder to us all to be brave and to have courage, so thank you.
One day while I was walking back to my dorm, I got a peculiar text from my grandma which read “Congratulations” confused by her text I called her. While the phone was ringing I realized that she was talking about the Fogarty Scholarship. When she picked up I was ecstatic to hear her news. I want to thank you for the scholarship. I appreciated it so much it will help cover some of you tuition fees.
I am on second semester of my freshman year at Sterling College in Sterling Kansas. It is a small private Christian school of about 700 students in the middle of Kansas. My friends and I stay busy though, on the plains of Kansas. There are always events and sports games going on throughout campus so there is always something to do. I am working on getting my undergrad in Communications. I want to eventually be a wedding planner and other magnificent events. I love my small school and I sincerely appreciate the scholarship that will help comer my fees. Thank you C/3/22 Association.

A sample of thank you letters C322 Association has received in the past:
Name: Madison Becthold
Name of member who nominated you: Judith Becthold
College you are attending: Luther College
Which year you are in and major: Sophomore Music Education
I am grateful for this scholarship because it will help me continue my education and reduce my loans. This is a big deal to me because I am going to be a teacher, and will not make a lot in terms of income, but also if I end up getting my masters it will be nice to not have too much debt from my bachelors left to pay before my masters degree is done.
It's always nice to hear from the scholarship awardees.
Dear Charlie Company,
Thank you for awarding me the Fogarty Scholarship. I am honored to receive it. Thank you for your service.
Sincerely, Marci England
