FOCUS 2015 – By The Numbers

  • January 21, 2016

This past calendar year has been a watermark year for Focus Marines Foundation. After our last session in November, FMF has now provided transition support for 542 Marines, Sailors, and Soldiers since our beginning in 2010. Not only have we affected the lives of these veterans who sacrifice so much for our freedom and security, but we have also affected the lives of more than 2,000 family members, friends and loved ones.

Each of the four FOCUS sessions in 2015 averaged 34 participants. Below is a review by the numbers of FOCUS for 2015.
