GATOR DETACHMENT - MARINE OF THE YEAR
2019 Marine of the Year - John Murdoch
Marine John Murdoch was selected as the 2018-2019 Marine of the Year for the Gator Detachment.
John has served as Judge Advocate during this last year and has worked hard on getting the Gator Detachment's Bylaws updated after major changes having been made at the national level. He has worked with the Department of Florida Judge Advocate to ensure the approval process goes smoothly. While it is not a factor in the MOY criteria, Murdoch has served the detachment as Judge Advocate for the last 11 years.
Marine Murdoch also serves as the District 2 Vice Commandant, a state officer position. In this capacity, he is the liaison between the Department of Florida and the detachments in this District, which includes our detachment. He is now in his fifth year in that position.
John's devotion to our detachment and his continued dedication to the League was recognized during the presentation on November 2, 2019 when he was named The Gator Detachment Marine of the Year.
