Marine Corps Junior ROTC AWARDEES

Since 1982 the MCRA, in coordination with HQMC, has been honoring outstanding Marine Corps Junior ROTC units across America.  The purpose of the Marine Corps Junior ROTC program is "to prepare high school students for leadership roles while making them aware of their rights, responsibilities, and privileges as American citizens." The Marine Corps Junior ROTC program produces successful students and productive adults, while fostering a more constructive and disciplined learning environment.  We are proud to announce the 2014 OUTSTANDING Marine Junior ROTC units:

MCRA SUPPORTING 
RESERVE PME

Anytime one gets to speak with a group of Marines, it is a good day!  The MCRA had a great day on 28 June, when MCRA Board Members SgtMaj Joe Staudt, Sgt Dan Connally and Deputy Director Tom Green, had the honor of speaking at the Reserve Sergeant’s, Career and Advanced Courses, about the benefits of joining their professional Association.

Shortly thereafter, everyone was in attendance for the graduation ceremony during which time the honor graduate from each class was presented with the Sergeant Major Allan Kellogg Award in the form of a sword.  Although MCRA has been presenting swords for three years, this is the first year with an official name attached to it, thanks to Medal of Honor Recipient SgtMaj Allan Kellogg’s willingness to have it named in his honor.

In addition to the swords being presented, the Gung-Ho recipient in each class was presented with a K-Bar.

 The guest speaker was the Sergeant Major of HQMC Reserve Affairs, Sergeant Major George Muskievicz,  who did an outstanding job and spent time with after the ceremony and always we thank the Academy Staff, especially SgtMaj Cherry and MSgt Allen, for their gracious support

The MCRA has long recognized the importance of continuing PME, if it were not for the MCRA, these outstanding Reserves would not receive these awards.
