JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — Air Force Personnel Center officials are now accepting nominations for the 2015 Air Force Association Joan Orr Air Force Spouse of the Year Award and the 2015 AFA Verne Orr Award.

The Joan Orr award honors significant contributions made by non-military spouses of Air Force military members.

The nominee’s spouse must be serving in the Air Force, active duty, Air National Guard or Air Force Reserve. Each major command, field operating agency or direct reporting may submit one nomination. Completed nomination packages are due to the AFPC by Jan. 31, 2015.

The AFA established the Verne Orr award in honor of former Secretary of the Air Force Verne Orr to recognize mission-oriented unit accomplishments and achievements that used personnel to their full potential in order to accomplish the mission.

Nominations, being accepted through Jan. 7, 2015, are open to all Air Force units and organizations regardless of size. Each MAJCOM, combatant command, FOA and DRU may submit only one nomination.

For both awards, organizations and base-level personnel must contact their MAJCOM, COCOM, FOA or DRU for applicable suspense dates and additional information regarding nomination procedures.
