The Marine of the Year award is the highest award that can be bestowed upon a Marine Corps League member. All detachments have a Marine who stands out above all others, a Marine who is always willing to roll up his/her sleeves to do that tough job. Detachment Commandants should use this award to recognize that special Marine.
Commandants are reminded that nominations shall be based on achievements and activities during the period of June to May of that year.
It is imperative that Detachment Commandants submit their nomination letter from their detachment in time to meet the deadline.
