The Department of Oregon was recently awarded a Second Place Plaque and Citation for exceeding our previous year’s membership by 114.38 percent. The award was presented at the recent Marine Corps League National Convention. As Department Commandant Benjamin Quen noted, “this award could not have been achieved without the efforts of each of the state’s Detachments. So, congratulations to all Oregon MCL Detachments.
Quen further noted that this second-place award helped the NW Division achieve a second-place award as well.
