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.

Thank you for presenting me with the Marine Corps Association Honor Award. I am deeply grateful to be given...
Over the past 4 years while serving as a Sergeant Major at two different units the MCA has provided important support. While stationed at Marine Corps Security Force Battalion, Bangor, Washington I conducted 8 Corporal Courses the MCA provide plaques, certificates, and books. This impacted over 200 Corporals and Petty Officers. Both the Marine and NCO of the Quarter were given the NCO handbook provided by the MCA for the 12 quarters I was the Sergeant Major.
Since being station with...
It is good to hear from you.
The MCA was instrumental in the establishment of our company reading program. They provided us a book grant that was the cornerstone of our NCO reading program. By focusing on warfighting ethos, small unit tactics, and combat leadership the reading program greatly contributed to the esprit de corps and combat proficiency of the company.
In addition to the book grant they provided our honor graduates with books and plaques to honor...

Dear Col Keenan,
On behalf of the Marines and Sailors of 1st Marine Special Operations Battalion, I would like to thank you for your support in helping us to establish our unity library.

Our Academic Instruction Facility contains a library room complete with book shelves and reading tables, but no books. Without your assistance...
I received the package today ( Thurs. 2/9), The Award is beautiful, it will display well with my other Collectibles. Although it is not the same format that I was presented in 1968, it was worth waiting 43 years to receive. I have a photo of the original presentation to display with the plaque.
Thanks again for your efforts to make a former Marine proud.
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.
Again, Many thanks and...
