The purpose for this Badge of Honor is to recognize Members that preform the greatest service that a Marine can give to our fellow Veterans. Honor Guard Ceremonies are preformed at a moments notice and most Members have to take off from work to Honor our Fallen Veterans. This Badge of Honor recognizes the Quiet sacrifice our Members make to honor our Brothers and sisters. Even if you do not Participate or are Qualified to wear this Badge, please donate to help others. (This badge enhances the Honor ribbon that was recently approved for wear )
Please be advised this is not approved "YET" for use on the MCL uniform.
I hope that it will be approved. We will continue to submit this to National until it is.
This will help with the approval process to have a Badge on hand other than a picture.
Once approved, it will need to be approved for wear on the MCL uniform by one of the following:
Detachment Commandant, State Commandant or National Commandant.
Qualifications will be at the discretion of the Detachment, State and National Commandant.
The suggestion is: Badge is to be worn on MCL uniforms by Honor Guard Members only. Member must perform in 3 Honor Guard Ceremonies before authorization to wear the Badge. Badge to be located on the center of the right breast pocket for white short and long sleeve MCL shirts, center of right lapel on the casual red blazer and same when red blazer is used for formal wear. Option is pending for the Staff NCO blazer. Suggestions appreciated.
The location and qualification will be up to National.
