Air Commandos have been deeply involved in overt and covert operations around the globe spanning from World War II (Europe, Pacific, China, Burma, and India), Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, the Balkans, Kosovo, Africa, Panama, Colombia, the Philippines, Iraq, Afghanistan and many more. Given the number of Air Commandos involved in these operations, there are certainly heroes who may or may not have been rewarded for their contributions. These are men and women who served gallantly, usually without acclaim for themselves. In some cases, only their closest comrades, friends, or family members know the true sacrifices and contributions these Airmen made. As such, the Air Commando Association is seeking your help to properly recognize these professionals and their accomplishments by nominating them for the Air Commando Hall of Fame. Please consider nominating worthy Air Commandos by submitting a strong award package for the committee’s review.
Some additional information to consider:
- Strong basic write-ups with specific examples of accomplishment
- Good supporting documentation: active duty medals, and other official documents or citations highlighting SOF-specific contributions
- How the nominee supported fellow Airmen, Air Commandos, and their local SOF communities during their active duty service
- Service and contributions to the AFSOF community that went beyond active duty careers (i.e., contributions made on behalf of SOF after leaving active service
Again, we urge you to take a moment to reflect on your experiences to identify leaders who made a difference and nominate them for the Air Commando Hall of Fame. Please review the criteria and procedures before sending in your nomination. All submissions must be received by July 31 of each year. Submissions received after July 31st will NOT be considered until the following year.
