The Pensacola Navy League is proud of the efforts of military personnel who volunteer their time to enrich the community. The Pensacola Navy League recognizes the efforts of these men and women during the annual Margaret Flowers Civic Award, Military Recognition Day ceremony. The ceremony, a lunch event held in February, is the largest event hosted by the Council. Enlisted service members (up to E-6) from the Pensacola area are nominated by their commands. The selection criterion is based on civic work in the community, leadership, rate proficiency and representation of appearance. The award’s namesake, Margaret Flowers, honors Ms. Flowers’ long and devoted record of service to the Navy and the community; she embodies the true esprit de corps of community and social involvement.
