Camp H. M. Smith, Hawaii - Col. Brent S. Willson, commanding officer of Headquarters and Service Battalion, U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Pacific, recognizes Moli Copple, from El Paso, Ill., during an award ceremony following the annual Camp Smith 5K Grueler here, July 28. Copple, a basketball player for Millikin University in central Illinois, is on vacation with her family, and ran the race to meet the summer “5K quota” set by her team. After being errantly presented with a plaque for one of the fastest female times, Copple immediately returned the award. Willson commended Copple for her integrity and vowed to mail her a souvenir as a token of the battalion’s appreciation.
