The Mike Philbin Memorial Golf Tournament was named in memory of Michael Patrick Philbin, of San Diego, who was a key member of the Flying Leatherneck Historical Foundation's board of directors.

Mike was born in Philadelphia, Penn. in November 1946 into a Marine Corps family. His dad, who had served in China in the late '30s, was a career Marine retiring as a Mustang Captain in 1962. He grew up as a Marine "brat" living in Perris Island, Camp LeJuene (twice), El Toro, and San Diego. He attended San Diego State University majoring in marketing and joined the Marines in 1968.
