Scott Citizen-Soldier Nominations Sought

Our nation continues its reliance on the citizen-soldiers for the many and diverse missions in support of our defense. These citizens perform a dual role as defenders and civilian contributors to our community. They are citizens of our community and soldiers of our nation.

The Chamber wishes to recognize, with the 29th annual presentation, the Howard O. Scott Citizen-Soldier of the Year. Your nominee is desired. Nominees may currently be called to active duty.

Guidelines are:
  1. A Reservist or National Guard member, any service;
  2. A resident of Tacoma or Pierce County;
  3. Professional in both military and civilian occupations;
  4. An exemplary volunteer in the community.
  5. Additional consideration will be given if the nominee is an employee of a Chamber member or owns a business that is a Chamber member.
Nominations should be no longer than two pages, no photos. While military professionalism is important, this is usually a given standard. It is recommended that the nomination focus on the nominee's volunteerism in the community. You are referenced to the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medal, which has been added to the list of awards and decorations that earn promotion points.

Selection of the honoree will be made by the Military Affairs Committee of the Chamber. Presentation of the Award will be at the May 4, 2010 meeting of the Kiwanis Club of Tacoma, 11:45 a.m. at the Pacific Grill Events Center, 1530 Pacific Ave., Tacoma 98402. You will be informed of the ceremonies if you submit a nomination and give us your contact info.

Submit nominees to the Chamber. Include: Nominee’s name, unit and contact info as well as the reasons for nomination. The deadline for submitting nominees is April 23, 2010. Submit to Gary Brackett.
