Rutgers ROTC Program 

The inaugural scholarships were awarded to midshipmen from the Rutgers NROTC Unit who did not yet have full scholarships, but exemplified commitment and leadership.

"The Dash"

Many say “the dash” between the dates on a headstone represents the life lived.


We, at the Max Buchanan Foundation, believe there is more.  We believe his legacy lives on in those who knew him, through the work of the Max Buchanan Foundation, and through all the lives he touched.


We are proud to use the “infinity” sign, rather than “the dash” — this is the heart of what the Max Buchanan Foundation represents.
