The Veteran Supporter of the Month Award recognizes both active organizations and non-veteran Nevada community members that provide exceptional support to military stationed in Nevada, Nevada veterans, and their families.
This program expands the Nevada Veteran of the Month Award (VOM) by shining a bright light on individuals who, while not serving in uniform, help veterans with no expectation of recognition or award. It also serves to recognize the contributions of organizations who donate their time and energy to improve the life of our veterans.
In creating this new award Governor Sandoval stated, “I am very proud of the way our Nevada communities have come together to support our military and our veterans. The Veteran Supporter of the Month Award gives us the opportunity to recognize those who are dedicated to easing the transition between military and civilian life and who support veterans in need.”
Anyone can nominate candidates for this award. Submissions are reviewed by the members of the Nevada Veterans Service Commission (VSC) at its quarterly meetings who forward their recommendations to the Governor. The program is administered by the Nevada Department of Veterans Services.
