America Supports You: SemperComm Accepting 2008 Award Nominations
American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON, Oct. 4, 2007 The SemperComm Foundation is accepting award nominations from the military community for its 2008 SemperComm Award, which recognizes extraordinary efforts by military members to boost the morale of their fellow servicemembers while stationed at remote locations.
This award is open to military personnel from all branches of the U.S. armed forces.
Nominees will be judged based on three criteria: what actions the individual took to boost morale; the duty station’s size and remoteness; and the nominee’s willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty.
The SemperComm Foundation is dedicated to supplying morale-boosting communications and entertainment equipment, software and services to small, overseas remote U.S. military bases.
The group is a supporter of America Supports You, a Defense Department program connecting citizens and corporations with military personnel and their families serving at home and abroad.
SemperComm receives major support from Computer Systems Center Inc., a defense-oriented software-development company, and Stars For Stripes, a nonprofit group that brings celebrity entertainers to U.S. troops.
Award winners will be invited to bring one guest to the SemperComm Gala on April 10, 2008, in Arlington, Va., where awards will be presented. Travel and lodging will be provided for each winner and guest by the SemperComm Foundation.
Nomination forms are available on the SemperComm Web site, at www.sempercomm.org, and will be accepted until Jan. 28, 2008.
