MCAF News and Announcements
PFC Nathan S. Trefethan, from Sacramento, Calif., was recognized with the award at the April 19, 2013 India Company graduation for 3d Recruit Training Battalion, Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego.
At The Basic School, Marines are taught to learn from the examples set forth by past leaders. That legacy was permanetly etched for the recent honor grad of TBS's Fox Company and the recipient of the 1stLt Baldomero Lopez Honor Graduate Award.
With a rakish AV-8 Harrier flying shotgun above and flanked by realistic dioramas of Marines storming a beach and a hot LZ, the grandeur of the National Museum of the Marine Corps’ rotunda served as the setting for the 2nd Annual Wounded Warrior Awards Reception on 2 April 2013.
Marine Security Guard may have been a “B” billet for GySgt Luis Vasquezestrada but it was a role he put his heart into.

Past MCAF Events
I want to relay my many thanks to everyone at Marine Corps Association
and Military Historical Tours for providing me the opportunity to
experience such a wonderful trip to Russia. Had I not won this trip
through MCA I may have never taken advantage of such fantastic
travels. The group, the Russian Tour guide (Oleg Alexandrov) and
Charlie Dunn were wonderful companions during the trip. It will be a
memory I will cherish all of my remaing days on this earth...
I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone at the association for sponsoring the Ground Awards Dinner on 3 June at the Crystal City Marriott. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and were tremendously pleased with the hospitality shown to us and the great accommodations. As well, I wanted to thank the association for the DVD of the event that was mailed to me. It is something that I will keep and treasure for the rest of my days. Again, thanks for everything.
Dear Major General Usher,
I gratefully acknowledge, accept, and thank you for the recent support of the 2d Marine Aircraft Wing's PME trip to Belleau Wood, France in June of this year. This educational and historical tour will be of immense value in familiarizing Marines with the importance of our legacy in sustaining the Marine Corps. We appreciate your contribution and generosity in helping make this PME trip a uniquely successful and memorable event.
My name is Major Bob McCarthy, I am the CO for HQ Btry, 10th Marines.
I want to extend my thanks and appreciation to you and the Association for your assistance ($500 grant) in the establishment of our unit library.
My primary MET right now is to "Provide Forces" in support of the MEF, Div, RCT, and sister battalions going forward. We should provide the gaining unit with a flexible, agile, confident Marine capable of executing a variety of tasks - I believe...
