Has your elected representative been a strong National Guard supporter? Do you know of a Guardsman who has performed a life-saving act? If so, these individuals are potential candidates for NGAUS recognition. The association is seeking nomina-tions for its 2012 NGAUS Individual Awards Program. Nominees should have demonstrated superior perfor-mance, committed acts of heroism or contributed significantly to Guard ef-fectiveness. There are 12 separate individual awards. Complete awards program in-formation will be mailed this month to each state and territory joint-force headquarters and state and territory Guard association. NGAUS award pro-gram basics are also available online at www.ngaus.org/awards. Twenty-five states and territories nominated 74 people for NGAUS awards last year. In 2010, 30 states and territories submitted nearly 100 nomi-nations. Nominations must be submitted by May 15, and most must have an adju-tant general endorsement. The only ex-ceptions are submissions directly from state and territory Guard associations. A standing five-person awards com-mittee will review the nominees in June and make recommendations to the NGAUS board for final approval in July. Recipients will be announced in late July. Awards will be presented during business sessions of the 134th General Conference and Exhibition, Sept. 9 to 12 in Reno, Nev., subject to the avail-ability of the recipient. Nominations for Army Guard and Air Guard unit awards presented at the conference must be submitted through the National Guard Bureau. They have different submission procedures and deadlines. NOTE: Strength percentages are determined by adding each state and territory’s active annual and active life members and dividing that figure by their officer strength. Retired members do not count toward active membership strengths. *As of Dec. 31, 2011 **Includes 294 nonaffiliated members. 46 | Na tional Guard
