Stan Broton

2012 Marine of the Year

Stan is Chairman of our Detachment Marine Rose Program and a Life Member of the Marine Corps League.  In 2012, Stan was instrumental in organizing and leading our Marine Rose Program fundraisers.  His devotion to the program, in which we gave out over 1700 Marine Roses and hundreds of Toys For Tots pencils, resulted in Thor Detachment raising over $4000 in donations.  With these donations, Thor Detachment is able to help veterans and their families, while also supporting Operation Hometown Gratitude, a program which sends care boxes to our troops overseas.  In addition, Stan volunteered to collect toys for the annual Toys For Tots program in Rochester.  Furthermore, Stan was a volunteer at the Marine Corps League, Department of Minnesota Convention held in Rochester this past year.  Stan did all of this in spite of a job ending heart attack which he suffered three years ago.  Stan is a staunch supporter of the Marine Corps League and its programs, volunteering at every opportunity.  His leadership and devotion to duty exemplifies what it means to be a Marine.  Stan Broton is a great asset to Thor Detachment and reflects the highest standards of the Marine Corps League and the United States Marine Corps.
Semper Fi, Stan!
