In 2011, MCA&F distributed over 6,000 academic awards to top performing Marines and those enrolled in education programs leading to potential service in the Marine Corps. The Marine Corps’ Officer Candidates School (OCS), including the Platoon Leaders Class program, the U.S. Naval Academy, and Naval Reserve Officer Training Course (NROTC) are the three major commissioning sources in the Marine Corps. MCA&F provides awards to recognize the outstanding graduates of all of these programs.  In 2011, MCA&F provided these programs with over 200 awards.

“I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to you for awarding me the USMC Honor Grad Award on behalf of the Marine Corps Association. Your continuing support of the Villanova Naval ROTC Unit helps us shape the future of the United States Navy and Marine Corps. I am confident in my ability to uphold the tradition of the Honor Grad Award with the same Honor, Courage, and Commitment of those that came before me.”

Very Respectfully,

MIDN 1/C Michael Rasmussen

Congratulations MIDN 1/C Rasmussen on your achievement!
