Everyone had a wonderful time at the 2017 Semper Fidelis Award Dinner held on Wednesday, March 29, at The Ritz Carlton in Arlington Virginia. Each year the Marine Corps University Foundation honors an American of distinction with its Semper Fidelis Award which is presented at its dinner. The award was established to honor a leader who exemplifies high principles and dedicated service to our country. This year we honored The Honorable Jack Reed!   The Foundation’s Trustees and Commandant Robert Neller, USMC were in attendance among many other supporters of the Foundation. 

The Foundation’s Director of Special Events, Ms. Angela H. Blackiston, coordinated the details of the event. For information about next year's dinner, you may direct any questions and requirements to Ms. Blackiston at (703) 640-6835 or her email.
