Special Operations Center of Excellence
Seeks Distinguished Members of Special Operations Regiments

The U.S. Army Special Operations Center of Excellence is seeking nominations for current or former Soldiers to be made distinguished members of the Civil Affairs, Psychological Operations or Special Forces regiments.

Nominees may be active, retired or former officers, warrant officers or enlisted Soldiers who have graduated from the Civil Affairs, Psychological Operations or Special Forces qualification courses (or been awarded the Special Forces tab) and have served in their respective regiment. Nominees must have made significant contributions to the success of their regiment on the battlefield and/or to the training and qualification of new members of the regiment. Following retirement or discharge, nominees must have continued to make contributions to the regiment or the local community. Continued service to the regiment after separation from the military, either through formal or informal activities, is particularly important as a criterion for selection. Nominations can be made posthumously.

Nominations must include:

· A letter of recommendation that includes name, address, phone number and, if possible, e-mail address for the person being nominated. Posthumous nominations should provide contact information for the next of kin.

· A single-spaced nominee biography of two pages or less that includes assignments and accomplishments in chronological order, as well as awards earned.

· A good-quality, 8-by-10-inch photo (preferably head and shoulders). Original photos will be returned.

Submit nominations to:

Commanding General, SOCoE
3004 Ardennes St., Stop A
Fort Bragg, NC 28310-9610


The Regimental Honors, Awards and Affiliation Program is intended to recognize those who have contributed to the welfare of the Civil Affairs, Special Forces and Psychological Operations regiments, active or reserve component, as Department of the Army civilians, or in a private capacity. The program further serves as a link between members of the regiments currently serving and those who have separated from service, but continue to advance the interests of their respective regiments. These recognized individuals serve as role models, advocates and public examples to all members of the regiments. Through their sterling example, they enhance unit morale, cohesion and esprit, and promote the war-fighting ethos, unwavering sense of pride and selfless service of today's Soldiers.
