Guidelines and Nomination Forms

Click here to see a list of past Veteran of the Month Recipients

The Veteran of the Month award recognizes Nevada veterans who contribute their time and energy to support veterans, their communities and/or the military.

The award shines a bright light on the work veterans continue to do for the good our state and 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.
