To the Men and Women of the Marine Corps Association:
I am MIDN Paul Pham and in less than a month I can say I am a United States Marine. I have worked four years at USC, studying economics and laerning the Marine Corps' way of life. To be presented with this award is an unforgettable experience because to earn this award one must exemplify the Marine Corps traditions.
Thank you for presenting me with the Marine Corps Association Honor Award. I am deeply grateful to be given this award by the Marines, past and present, of this professional organization. I will hang this plaque the moment I receive an office.
