Marine Receives New Orleans Mayor's Community Service Award - Read More

NEW ORLEANS - Sgt. Juvante Butler, an administrative specialist with 4th Marine Division, Marine Forces Reserve, was presented the New Orleans Mayor’s Community Service Award at the World War II Museum in New Orleans, May 20, 2017.

The Mayor’s Community Service Award is given to one member of each military branch for their exceptional volunteer service. Each year, service members are nominated to receive the award for their hard work within the New Orleans community. Butler was selected to represent the Marine Corps for his outstanding involvement and mentorship within The Knights of Pythagoras, where he serves as an adviser.  “I was shocked, it was an emotional moment,” he said. “I went against a lot of other great Marines and knowing that I actually won, was very touching.”
