2017 Department Marine of the Year - Robert C. Ziltz
The Department Marine of the Year Award is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a regular member of the Marine Corps League, within the Department. Candidates for this award are recommended by the people who know them best; the Marines of their own Detachment. These recommendations are screened by a panel of judges made up entirely of past Department Marine of the Year recipients. The new Marine of the Year is introduced and honored at the Department Convention Banquet.
