Veteran Supporter of the Month


Guidelines and Nomination Form

Click here to see previous Veteran Supporter of the Month Recipients

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 lives of our veterans.

Anyone can nominate candidates for this award.  Submissions are reviewed by the members of the Nevada Veterans Services Commission (VSC) at its quarterly meetings who forward their recommendations to the Governor. The program is administered by the Nevada Department of Veterans Services.
