Nominations for Military Citizen Opened

Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen compose a vital part of our community.  The Chamber wishes to recognize, with the 33rd annual presentation, a Military-Citizen of the Year.

The Chamber’s Military Affairs Committee will make the selection of the honoree.  Presentation of the award, named for John Anderson, former Mayor and Chairman of the Chamber, will be made November 10, 12 noon at the meeting of the Rotary Club of Tacoma.

You are requested to submit nominees for this award.  The guidelines are:

1)      An active-duty Soldier, Airman, Sailor or Marine
2)  Residing in Tacoma or Pierce County
3)  Professional in military occupation
4)  An exemplary volunteer in the community

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. 

The deadline for submitting nominations is Nov. 1.  Nominations may be delivered to the Chamber’s offices, forwarded by mail, email (gary.brackett@tacomachamber.org) or fax 253-597-7305.  Your consideration of this request is appreciated.
