Nomination window open for 2018 USAF Alison Award for Character and Innovation

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas -- Nomination packages for the 2018 U.S. Air Force Alison Award for Character and Innovation are due to the Air Force’s Personnel Center by May 31, 2018. 
  
The U.S. Air Force Academy Falcon Foundation established the award to recognize a commissioned officer who exemplifies the Air Force core values. The foundation sponsors the award in recognition of demonstrated outstanding character and innovation in a single act or a series of related events during a single year. The recipient will receive the award at the annual Falcon Foundation Banquet in October 2018 at the Air Force Academy.  

Maj. Gen. John R. Alison, for whom the award was named, was a highly decorated World War II combat ace and veteran of the Korean War who became known as the father of Air Force Special Operations. On his death, Alison's family asked that donations in his honor be sent to the Falcon Foundation and the Air Force Association.  

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 nomination.

 

Find additional information about nomination eligibility criteria, process and other specifics on myPers using a CAC-enabled computer. Select “Any” from the dropdown menu and search “Alison.” Prior to posting the list on myPers, AFPC provided senior raters with advanced knowledge of their officers’ selection to allow notification through the chain of command.
