The 5th annual Warrior Award will be given to a local veteran at the 2016 Walk of Honor in Danbury next month. Organizer Mary Teicholz is now taking nominations from Danbury residents and people from the surrounding area. The nominee should be a veteran who has served in a combat zone, and who also exemplifies the values of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage.
The nominations should be approximately 500 words and should include the nominee’s name, military rank, medals awarded and as many details as possible about their service. The deadline for all nominations is September 22. People who previously sent in nominations can re-submit or send an e-mail to check if there is still a record of the nomination.
Presentation of the award will take place at the Walk of Honor on Sunday, October 16 at the Danbury War Memorial.
Include the name and contact information of the person submitting the nomination when emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.walkofhonor.us for additional information.
