Marine of the Year

Three cheers to borough daughter Cpl. Nelfi Tineoferreiras. The noncommissioned officer-in-charge of Receiving Section, Supply Company, Combat Logistics Regiment 35, 3rd Marine Logistics Group, was awarded III Marine Expeditionary Force’s Marine of the Year at Camp Kinser, Okinawa, Japan, on Feb. 8. She was honored for her exemplary dedication to her duties, which included her technical proficiency and demonstration of the Marine Corps’ core values.

“I have been through a lot and had to push through it, but I never gave up trying to better myself. The key to my success is hard work, dedication, and time management,” she said of the honor.

Tineoferreiras is a native of the Dominican Republic and was recruited into the Marine Corps right here in our town.
