National Image, Inc., will announce May 22 that two Army soldiers will receive the National Image Meritorious Service Award for 2003 during a major awards banquet, the 15th annual "Salute to the Hispanics in the Military."

Maj. Ayleen A. Cunningham-Sherill, a member of the U.S. Army Reserve Command's 9th Theater Support Command at Fort Belvoir, Va., and Sgt. 1st Class Elena Moralez-Alvarez, of U.S. Army Material Command, will be honored at the awards banquet in Los Angeles. The Meritorious Service Awards will be presented to outstanding members of the Armed Forces for their contributions to increased opportunities for Hispanic-Americans and their local communities.

Maj. Cunningham-Sherrill "distinguished herself as a dedicated leader and participant in the movement by Hispanics to gain equal rights in America, and the Greater Metropolitan Washington area," according to National Image officials. Born in Lima, Peru, she "not only embraced and exercised the use of equal rights for herself, but has facilitated the acquisition of the rights by all through various mentoring groups she leads, promoting ethnic diversity and multi-culturalism through her work with numerous agencies."
