Each year, deserving reunion class alumni and others are recognized by the USMMA Alumni Association and Foundation for individual achievement and service to the alumni, the Academy, and its midshipmen at the Alumni Awards Dinner during Homecoming Weekend. To accomplish this important task, the Alumni Foundation Chairman will appoint an Alumni Awards Committee to review all award nominations and recommend those who are deserving of recognition to the Executive Committee of the Alumni Association and Foundation for final approval.
