Silver Order of Mercury

Award Roster

The Silver Order of Mercury is the Association’s highest award. It will be awarded to those select few who stand above their peers and have made conspicuous long-term significant contributions to the U.S. Army Signal Corps and the Signal Corps Regimental Association (SCRA). This award represents a substantially greater level of contribution over a longer period than the Bronze Order of Mercury. Justification for this award is to be based upon continuous exceptional service to the Association in leadership positions and/or Chapter activities, as well as dedicated service to our Regiment.

Things to consider before applying:

  • Be able to provide a detailed description of the awardee’s conspicuous long-term significant contributions to the U.S. Army Signal Corps and the Signal Corps Regimental Association (SCRA).
    • Examples of “long-term significant contributions” may include:
      • Holding a president or officer position of an SCRA Chapter
      • Standing up an SCRA Chapter or hosting a membership drive
      • Hosting Orange Calls or Chapter Activities/Events
      • Organized Association Award/Recognition efforts for a Signal Event
  • An SCRA membership is required to receive the SOM award.
    • The length and status of membership is considered during voting.
  • The SCRA National Board is the only approving authority for the SOM award.
    • Once the application has been submitted, it will automatically be sent to the National Board for approval.
    • The National Board may approve, disapprove, or downgrade the SOM to a BOM.
  • We request applications to be submitted at least 30 days prior to desired presentation date to allow for voting and processing. If submitted within 30 days, you will be charged a $25 express fee at time of payment.
    • Please keep in mind if the award is going to an APO address, it will take longer for shipping.
  • Payment will not be required until the application has been approved by SCRA.
