AWARDS

Founded in 1962, MCAA's awards program is now the largest aviation-based award program in the country & at the core of the MCAA mission. Our 29 awards span the spectrum of Marine aviation & recognize Marines of all ranks who are nominated by their superiors & vetted through Headquarters Marine Corps. Each MCAA award is named in honor of a Marine who made noteworthy contributions in their field. Two additional prestigious awards are the Commandant’s Aviation Award & the Silver Hawk Award. 

 

We are proud to be a part of Marine Corps aviation history in the making as our young warriors forge a path of success for our nation, & humbled by their accomplishments and humility.
