SUBJ/MARINE CORPS CIVILIAN SERVICE PINS//

RMKS/1. OUR CIVILIAN MARINES ARE AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT OF

THE MARINE CORPS TEAM. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE EXPRESS OUR

APPRECIATION FREQUENTLY TO CIVILIAN MARINES FOR THEIR SUPPORT

AND FAITHFUL SERVICE TO CORPS AND COUNTRY. ACCORDINGLY, I

HAVE AUTHORIZED THE CREATION AND DISTRIBUTION OF A MARINE CORPS

CIVILIAN SERVICE PIN. THIS PIN WILL IDENTIFY OUR EMPLOYEES AS

CIVILIAN MARINES AND SERVE AS A VISIBLE EXPRESSION OF

APPRECIATION FOR THEIR HARD WORK AND SACRIFICE FOR THE MARINE CORPS.

2. IT IS MY INTENTION THAT THE CIVILIAN MARINE SERVICE PIN

BE GIVEN TO EACH CIVILIAN MARINE FROM ENTRY LEVEL TO SENIOR

EXECUTIVE SERVICE. THE PINS ARE NOW AVAILABLE AND DISTRIBUTION

CAN BE ARRANGED THROUGH THE LOCAL HUMAN RESOURCES OFFICE

BEGINNING IN FEBRUARY 2003. THE PIN WILL BE ISSUED TO NEW

EMPLOYEES WHEN THEY COMPLETE THEIR NEW EMPLOYEE ORIENTATION OR

TO CURRENT EMPLOYEES UPON CERTIFICATION OF THEIR YEARS OF SERVICE

TO THE MARINE CORPS.

3. THE MARINE CORPS CIVILIAN SERVICE PIN IS TO BE WORN BY ALL

CIVILIAN MARINES WITH HONOR AND IN THE KNOWLEDGE THE MARINE CORPS

IS A BETTER ORGANIZATION BECAUSE OF THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS AND

DEDICATION. CONGRATULATIONS AND MANY THANKS TO ALL CIVILIAN

MARINES FOR A JOB WELL DONE.

4. SEMPER FIDELIS, M. W. HAGEE, GENERAL, COMMANDANT OF THE

MARINE CORPS.//
