2017 Semper Fidelis Award Ceremony and Dinner honoring Senator Jack Reed
In 1985, the Marine Corps University Foundation, then the Marine Corps Command and Staff College Foundation, presented its first Semper Fidelis Award. In every year since, the Foundation has recognized a distinguished American leader whose commitment to personal and professional excellence embodies those qualities of leadership and character uniquely associated with the United States Marine Corps.
Everyone had a wonderful time at the 2017 Semper Fidelis Award Dinner held on Wednesday, March 29, at The Ritz Carlton in Arlington Virginia. This year we honored the Honorable Jack Reed, the senior Senator from Rhode Island. The Foundation’s Trustees and Military Guest of Honor, the 37th Commandant of the Marine Corps, General Robert B. Neller, USMC were in attendance among many other supporters of the Foundation.
