The Verne Orr Award, which recognizes an Air Force unit’s effective use of human resources, is open to all Air Force units and organizations regardless of size.
Organizations and base-level personnel must contact their major command, combatant command, field operating agency or direct reporting unit for applicable suspense dates and additional information regarding nomination procedures.
