Ray Joseph Hutchinson Medals and Awards
This foundation in our son's name is unique, not only in the reason it has been created, but also in the work that it will accomplish as it sends young men and women to universities across this great country, when they receive a scholarship from the Ray Joseph Hutchinson Foundation.  We have awarded more than $150,000 in scholarships thus far, ranging from $750 to $3000 each. The Ray Joseph Hutchinson Foundation is in the business of making this world a better place, now and for the future.  Each student who has received this auspicious award has been carefully selected by members of a selection committee from the board of the Ray Joseph Hutchinson Foundation.

"The Infantryman's Creed"


I am the Infantry.
I am my country's strength in war,

  her deterrent in peace.
I am the heart of the fight-
  wherever, whenever.
I carry America's faith and honor
  against her enemies.
I am the Queen of Battle.

I am what my country expects me to be-
  the best trained soldier in the world.
In the race for victory,
  I am swift, determined, and courageous,
  armed with a fierce will to win.

Never will I fail my country's trust.
Always I fight on-
  through the foe,
  to the objective,
  to triumph over all.
If necessary, I fight to my death.

By my steadfast courage,
  I have won 200 years of freedom.
I yield not-
  to weakness,
  to hunger,
  to cowardice,
  to fatigue,
  to superior odds,
  for I am mentally tough, physically strong,
  and morally straight.

I forsake not-
  my country,
  my mission,
  my comrades,
  my sacred duty.

I am relentless.
I am always there,
  now and forever.
