Adam on a CH-53 Superstallion

Our 501(c)(3) nonprofit was formed in memory of our son Adam C. Schoeller, a Sergeant in the US Marine Corps, who perished in the line of duty during a training mission off the north shore of Oahu, Hawaii on January 14, 2016. After losing our son, the outpouring of support to our family was overwhelming but gratefully received.

As we will always remember Adam and honor his legacy, our vision is to bring a level of awareness and provide support to those organizations who reach out to military families in times of crisis.


Our Mission

The charitable mission of the Sgt. Adam C. Schoeller, USMC, Memorial Fund, Inc is to raise funds through donations and special events that the corporation will, in turn, distribute to other organizations that provide direct service and support to members of the military and their families, veterans and Gold Star families. We also support organizations who offer scholarships to students seeking a military education.

If not Me, then Who
