Baton Rouge, La. — On behalf of the Benson family and the New Orleans Saints, Senior Account Executive of Corporate Partnerships, R.J. Mata, presented the United States Marine Corps Recruiting Station Baton Rouge with the Marine Corps Eastern Recruiting Region's top award on October 21, 2011. RS Baton Rouge completed its 2011 fiscal year on October 1, 2011, as the top- ranked recruiting station of 24 total stations in the eastern region. Due to the hard work of the RS Baton Rouge Marines and their ever-growing relationship with the New Orleans Saints, they were able to recruit and ship the most highly physically, educationally, and morally qualified young men and women America has to offer to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in Parris Island, South Carolina.
