The lists of proposed award recipients must be submitted to the Chief of Staff and GHQ no later than May 17, 2014 to allow time for Awards Committee review, consultation with and approval by the Commander in Chief, and for the GHQ staff to prepare the awards and include the names in the professionally printed Awards Luncheon Booklet. Award recommendation should be submitted by email to the Army Commanders as a MS word documents attachment. It is important to have the awards lists at GHQ by the June 3 deadline or GHQ will not be able to list your division’s award recipients in the Awards Luncheon souvenir booklet.

 Presentation of Awards

 All awards will be recognized at the Awards Luncheon on Friday, July 18, 2014 or at the Saturday night banquet on July 19, 2014. Please pick up your awards after the luncheon as well as those of men in your camp to take them home with you. This simple process will also save the SCV hundreds of dollars of postage expense and enable the staff to process your dues and new memberships more quickly when they return to GHQ.
