The Veteran of the Month award recognizes Nevada veterans who contribute their time and energy to support veterans, their communities and/or the military.
“Men and women across Nevada who have made a significant contribution will have achieved excellence by going above and beyond the call of duty," stated Governor Sandoval in his presentation. “It will be an opportunity for all of us to shine a bright light on the work veterans continue to do for our nation."
The program is managed by the Nevada Department of Veterans Services (NDVS) and we continue to ask for your help in nominating possible candidates so we may recognize veterans who contribute time and effort for the betterment of our state and the veteran community. Submissions will be reviewed and chosen by the members of the Veterans Service Commission (VSC) at its quarterly meetings.
Submissions are accepted throughout the year – Nomination deadline is three weeks prior to each VSC quarterly meeting.
Note: Digital application submission is currently offline but will be returning soon.
Note: The Nomination Packet must also include the nominee’s DD-214 Form and a photo of the nominee. For assistance in obtaining a copy of their DD-214 form, please call Nevada Department of Veterans Services – VAST at 775-321-4880.
