2009 President's Volunteer Service Awards

Marine Parents is fortunate to have the support of a portion of those 63 million volunteers. More than 150 volunteer their time for us daily, and another 150 work with us intermittently on outreach projects. Our volunteers are the lifeline of the organization, and we appreciate their dedication to executing our mission.

We sent out President's Volunteer Service Awards to 58 of our volunteers this week. These volunteers went above and beyond in the hours they committed to Marine Parents. The award packet they receive contains a letter from President Obama, a congratulatory letter from Marine Parents, a certificate and a pin that corresponds to the award level they reached.

The President's Volunteer Service Award program was established in order to thank and honor Americans who, through their service, inspire others to commit to civic participation.
