This award is to be given to members of the Association who have served the Regiment well and have made a significant contribution to the Association’s activities in the pursuit of its goals. A nominee’s grade and length of service must be considered as to degree of contribution to our Regiment, length of Association membership, and participation in our Association. Special consideration must be given to our functional area officers who have their first opportunity to become both members of the Regiment and Association only when they become Career Field Designated as a major so may first only learn of our Association at that time.
