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
Associate Member of the Year (AMOY), selection should be based on an associate who has distinguished him or herself by working for the improvement of the detachment and the community. It is through the eyes of the Board of Trustees, that the Associate Member is recognized for his or her efforts and presented with the distinct honor of "Associate Member Of the Year".
