JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- Air Force civilian employees and Airmen with disabilities have until Spring 2018 to submit nomination packages for the 2018 Outstanding Department of Defense Employee or Service Member with a Disability Award. 

The award honors individual civilian employees and service members with disabilities who supported the DoD mission or overseas contingency operations, or whose activities best epitomized the qualities and core values of their respective military branch or other DoD component.
 
The individual’s DoD career is considered the performance period for the award. 

Organizations and base-level personnel must contact their major or combatant command, forward operating agency, direct reporting unit or MAJCOM-equivalent for applicable suspense dates and additional information regarding nomination procedures. 

Each MAJCOM, COCOM, FOA, DRU and MAJCOM-equivalent may submit one military and one civilian nomination, due to the Air Force’s Personnel Center by April 25, 2018.  

Find additional information about nomination eligibility criteria, the nomination process and other specifics on myPers, accessible from a CAC-enabled computer. Select “Any” from the dropdown menu and search “Outstanding.”
