Back in April, the Marine Corps League Outer Banks Detachment donated to honor the first Woman Marine, Opah May Johnson, by contributing to a fund to construct a monument on her unmarked grave. On 29 August 2018, Opah's monument was unveiled in a ceremony attended by senior Marine Corps officials and members of the Women Marines Association. Bravo Zulu Marines!

The Outer Banks Detachment was recently awarded a Department Meritorious Unit Commendation in recognition of its efforts in aiding the young daughter of two Marine parents who was seriously injured in a biking accident last year. Through the combined efforts of the detachments within the Department of North Carolina, over $8,500 was raised and donated to provide financial aide to assist the family in their time of urgent need. This action was recognized by the Marine Corps League Mideast Division with this citation as in keeping with the highest tradition of the Marine Corps League's founding principle of “Marines helping Marines.” This was the second such citation awarded to the Outer Banks Detachment since its charter in 2006 and authorizes the addition of a bronze star to the Department Meritorious Unit Commendation streamer. In addition, all those who were members of the Outer Banks Detachment between 23 June and 31 December 2017 are authorized to wear this award in recognition of the cited effort.
