Within the detachment, there is no award higher than that of
the "Marine of the Year" that can be bestowed upon a
Marine Corps League member by the Marine of the Year Society.
All detachments have a Marine who performs and displays the dedication, leadership qualities and principles of a good
Marine above all others.
It is this Marine who is always willing to roll up his/her sleeves to do that tough job, the daunting tasks or put in the long hours of personal sacrifice, without hopes of reward, all to achieve the goals of the detachment and the Marine Corps League. All of this is evaluated through the Marines participation, and noteworthy accomplishments, perseverance and devotion to duty.
"Marine of the Year" is the award to recognize that special Marine.
