The CG MCIEAST-MCB CAMLEJ will recognize enlisted Marines, private through sergeant, who have demonstrated exceptional performance of duty. Marine/NCO of the Year will be based on a Marine’s previous selection as Marine/Noncommissioned Officer of the Year as reported in the Installation Commander’s recommendation and on the Marine's military record. If the Installation Commander does not have a program for Marine/Noncommissioned Officer of the Year, a previously selected Marine/Noncommissioned Officer of the Quarter can represent his/her installation.
Marine/NCO of the Year: The CG will convene one board per calendar year to select the most qualified Marines to compete for selection as the MCIEAST-MCB CAMLEJ Marine/NCO of the Year. Lance Corporals and below will compete for recognition as the Marine of the Year and sergeants and corporals will compete for recognition as the NCO of the Year. The CG will solicit nominations from subordinate commands to compete and apperar before the board. Nominees will report in the designated uniform to the Sergeant Major or to alternate location as directed. Installation Commanders will ensure nominees meet the qualifications outlined in MCIEAST-MCB CAMLEJO 1650.8 for submission as Marine/NCO of the Year (click here).
