AMMUNITION HALL OF FAME


AMMUNITION HALL OF FAME PROGRAM INFORMATION

All nominations for the 2015 Ammunition Hall of Fame are due no later than 30 November 2014. Please see The Ammunition Hall of Fame Regulation for complete program information.

BACKGROUND:

The Ammunition Hall of Fame was established in October 2011 to memorialize and honor former members of the ammunition community who have made significant and lasting contributions to the U.S. Army ammunition mission.

Individuals will be chosen solely on their significant contributions to the U.S. Army ammunition mission and each selectee will be able to stand up to close scrutiny. Attainment of high rank or position is not necessarily indicative of a significant contribution to the mission. Likewise, rank, sex, ethnicity and/or religion are not discriminators.

Who is eligible for nomination?

* Retired, reassigned, separated, or positively discharged from a military or civilian service ammunition/ammunition related position (using the nominee's official retirement/separation date) for at least two years from date nomination package is submitted. Therefore, the individual still may be employed in a different career/branch or sector of the Army.

* Deceased, the nominee is eligible immediately without regard to years of service or retirement/separation status.


How do I nominate someone?

* Include a "head and shoulders” or professional style photograph (color if possible) of the nominee. Alternative photos will be accepted.

* Submitting supplemental documentation and letters of recommendations/testimonials, may assist the project office in documenting and verifying the nominee's contributions, but is optional.

Note: Nominators will be notified immediately if their nomination was submitted without sufficient details and documentation. If corrective action is not taken, the nomination will be returned to the nominator without action.


How long does a nomination remain active?
Once submitted, the nomination will remain active for two consecutive years. After two consecutive reviews by the selection board, the nomination will be placed in an inactive status. The nominee may be nominated for three consecutive two year consideration periods. After that the nominee can be considered again if re-nominated after a one year waiting period. If an individual is re-nominated during the waiting period the nomination will be effective when the waiting period is over.
