The Marine Excellence Awards Program
The Marine Corps Association Foundation provides awards to recognize exceptional performance across the Corps including thousands of awards at professional schools and within occupations fields. From boot camp honor graduates to Marine of the Year awards, the Marine Corps Association Foundation honors outstanding Marines of all ranks.
Details for Marines Units
- MCAF is the largest contributor of awards given to the U.S. Marine Corps. Awards are a valuable incentive and an appropriate means of recognizing Marines and sailors who excel in their commands and formal schools and leadership courses.
- We request that instructors send us a letter with detailed award recipient information at least four weeks prior to the recognition occasion.
- Please include the full name of the award winner with rank, the exact date of the occasion, Senior Military Instructor's information, and any other information that should be included on the plaque.
- For additional information on Marine Corps Association Foundation Awards, please review Marine Corps Order 1650.31G
