University of Parris Island

 On November 10, 2000, following my son Eric's graduation from Parris Island, he said he wanted a University of Parris Island bumper sticker. As a former Marine, I had to laugh at the concept but also recognized it's potential. A year later the phrase was a registered Trade Mark. Time passed design concepts were discussed and a few prototype shirts were produced. Clothing was the chosen option over decals.


 February 17, 2006 Eric, now a sergeant had only recently decided to make the Corps a career. At that time he was attached to Detachment Bravo with HMH-464 in Djibouti, Africa. On that day, Eric along with seven fellow Marines and two Airmen was killed in a mid air collision between 2 CH- 53 e Super Stallions during a flight over the Gulf of Aden.

  The Sgt. Mac Foundation was created shortly thereafter with a mission to aid fellow Marines, Servicemen and women as well as Veterans.

  All profits from the University of Parris Island sales go directly to the Sgt. Mac Foundation a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit.
