    6th Marine Corps District

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The United States Marine Corps is pleased to recognize Trey Putnam III of Langtree Charter Academy in Mooresville, North Carolina for attending the 2019 Semper Fidelis All-American Program Battles Won Academy, July 11-15, in Washington, D.C. Putnam was selected not only for his athletic performance but for outstanding character, academic excellence, and community leadership that reflects the Marine Corps’ values of honor, courage, and commitment. Putnam will be presented a congratulatory certificate at Langtree Charter Academy on Oct. 28 at 4 p.m.

    The Battles Won Academy brings together approximately 100 of the country’s top student-leaders for a week in the nation’s capital. The program provides Marines with several opportunities to purposefully engage the student leaders and share leadership lessons that will enhance their future success.

    During the academy, students experience leadership lessons at the Marine Corps Officer Candidates School, team building events, community service and a history-themed scavenger hunt on the National Mall. This year, one of the most engaging and rewarding opportunities was a community service event during which participants built and presented 20 brand-new bikes to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington.

    The Battles Won Academy taps into the irreducible essence of the Marine Corps, which is the fighting spirit of the Marine. The essence of the Marines individually and collectively is the willingness to engage and the determination to defeat an opposing force – whether personal or on behalf of our nation and its communities.
