The Mission of the Custodes Libertatis Memorial Foundation is to provide educational scholarship tuition grants for a post-secondary degree, from an accredited two or four-year college, university, technical, or trade school. These educational scholarship tuition grants are available to the children of graduates of the United States Naval Academy who have lost their lives in combat against the enemies of the United States of America, as a result of Military Training, in the line of United States Department of Defense Duty, as a direct result of their service in the United States Intelligence Community, Law Enforcement Agency, Emergency Medical Services, or as a First Responder, in the period following September 11th, 2001. The Foundation is an American tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded to provide these grants to the children.
Today, over 70 graduates from 30 United States Naval Academy classes have made the ultimate sacrifice in the Post 9/11 era.
Guardians of Liberty ("Custodes Libertatis") is the motto of the United States Naval Academy class of 2006. The class of 2006 is leading this initiative on behalf of all Naval Academy alumni and the children of our fallen shipmates.
