JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — Air Force officials are seeking nominees for the 2013 Noncommissioned Officers Association Award.

The award annually recognizes one enlisted member from each of the uniformed services for acts of heroism that result in saving someone’s life or preventing serious injury. The act must have occurred between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2012.

The act must be a voluntary action initiated by the nominee and not a result of directions or orders. It must also have been a legitimate attempt to save a life or prevent serious injury to another person or people.

Each major command, field operating agency and direct reporting unit may nominate one person in each category.

Organizations and base-level personnel must contact their MAJCOM, FOA or DRU for applicable suspense dates and additional information regarding nomination procedures. Nominations are due to the Air Force Personnel Center by Jan. 28.
