Veteran of the Month and Veteran Supporter of the Month


Four new veterans and five new veteran supporters are slated to receive the honor and recognition of being named Veteran of the Month or Veteran Supporter of the Month through May of this year.  

The honor of Veteran of the Month will be awarded to the following individuals:

  • James Glaser – February
  • Robert James Mort – March
  • Terry Estabrook – April
  • Ed Kaatz – May

Each Veteran of the Month will be honored in a special ceremony in the month listed above with the date, time, and location to be announced once details are finalized.

The honor of Veteran Supporter of Month will be presented to the following individuals and groups:

  • Northern Nevada All Veteran Honor Guard/Color Guard – February
  • Home Depot Foundation – March
  • AARP Nevada- April
  • Su Phelps – April
  • Reno Elks Lodge #597 – May

Each Veteran Supporter of the Month will be honored in a special ceremony in the month listed above with the date, time, and location to be announced once details are finalized.

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

The Veteran Supporter of the Month 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.
