JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) --
Nominations for the 2014 Non Commissioned Officers Association Vanguard Award are due to the Air Force Personnel Center by Jan. 28, Air Force officials said.
The award annually recognizes one enlisted member from each of the uniformed services for an act of heroism that results in saving someone's life or preventing serious injury. The act must have occurred between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2013.
The act must be a voluntary action initiated by the nominee and not a result of directions or orders. Further, it must also have been a legitimate attempt to save a life or prevent serious injury to another person or people.
Each major command, combatant command, field operating agency and direct reporting unit may nominate one person in each category. Organizations and base-level personnel must contact their MAJCOM, COCOM, FOA or DRU for applicable suspense dates and additional information regarding nomination procedures.
