Dear Marquette University NROTC Alumni and Friends,
 
Please help your Association Board by nominating deserving alumni candidates for our 2018 Alumnus and Young Alumnus Awards, to be presented at the 2018 Annual Fall Ball. We strongly encourage you to consider the records of fellow alumni and nominate candidates you feel are worthy of special recognition.
 
Many distinguished alumni have served our country valiantly and honorably during the past 78 years, both in peacetime, and during every conflict from World War II through Korea, Vietnam, two GulfWars and Afghanistan, and many skirmishes in between. We have honored thirteen of our distinguished alumni since 1990, from a Marine Corps First Lieutenant to aNavy Vice Admiral. We know other alumni officers are deserving of this honor. We need your help in bringing them to our attention. Alumni are our primary source of nominations.
 
Please make plans to join us during the Annual Fall Ball. Meanwhile, please use the following Award Guidelines and Nomination Form to put forward the name(s) and documentation of worthy Marquette NROTC Alumni Award candidates. That includes the re-nomination of candidates who were not selected in previous years, who remain eligible for these honors if their names are resubmitted.

Alumni Notes Featuring Rick Lorenz’s “Civilian” Cruise Aboard USS Wasp

Rick became  a "Subject Matter Expert,"as part of the Naval Postgraduate School Regional Security Education Program (RSEP). He was to sail across the Atlantic with the MEU and the Amphibious Ready Group (ARG) on the USS Wasp LHD-1. The RSEP places university faculty on ships to give security briefings on countries in the region. He found out about this program ten days before the cruise started.

The Atlantic crossing is chronicled in his diary assembled from the emails he sent to friends during the voyage. One of the most touching events during the cruise was the burial at sea of a World War II veteran. The vet’s family provided the man’s first hand account of his wartime experiences. We have left Rick’s document unedited and attached a pdf copy of the WW II veteran’s story.
