Service Before Self Candidates Sought

October 30, 2012 State of Wyoming No Comments

Governor Matt Mead and The Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation have announced they are now accepting nominations for the Citizen Service Before Self Honors, to recognize and honor those ordinary Americans who become extraordinary through their courage and selflessness.  Governor Mead and Medal of Honor recipients encourage individuals to nominate any United States civilian who has clearly demonstrated a willingness to sacrifice for others whether through a single act of extraordinary heroism at risk to one’s life or through a prolonged series of selfless acts. The nominee’s actions must epitomize the concept of “service before self” and must be performed “above and beyond” one’s professional area of responsibility or conduct.  A panel, to include Medal of Honor recipient representation, will consider all nominations and select national finalists.  Citizens may submit an eligible nominee by completing the nomination form online via the Citizen Service Before Self Honors website. The nomination period ends on Friday, December 28th and finalists will be announced on Monday, March 11, 2013.
