Bruce Judge

Longtime MCM Runner Saluted Upon Retirement

Bruce JudgeIn preparation of his August retirement following 42 years of combined service to the Marine Corps and federal government, Marine Corps Marathon runner Retired Lt. Col. Bruce Judge captured another celebratory finish under the MCM arch on July 11, but this finish occurred at Quantico’s Butler Stadium. After completing a four-mile run with friends and coworkers at Quantico, Judge made one final lap on the stadium track before running through the finish arch where he was met with grand applause. Most recently serving as Chief of Staff of the Training and Education Command (TECOM), Judge is a 17-time MCM finisher who became Captain Emeritus of “The Bold, the Bald and The Beautiful,” running team, aptly named for the captain himself. Many former members of the B, B & B team came to run with Judge and attend the surprise finish ceremony led by Director Rick Nealis. Calling him a “man of great courage and commitment,” Nealis presented Judge with a framed depiction of his 17 marathon finishes. “I thought I was just going to evaporate from the Marine Corps but this is a great way to finish my career,” said Judge.
