It's not hard to imagine that Reservists would have a very difficult time doing what they do without the support of their spouse, their employer, or both. Which is why the 446th Airlift Wing recognizes a spouse of the year and an employer of the year at its annual awards banquet.

The 446th AW Annual Awards Banquet will be March 3, 2012.

Nominations are now being accepted for the spouse and employer of the year. This program provides special recognition on a calendar year basis for exceptional performance and/or achievements by spouses and employers of assigned members to the 446th Airlift Wing.

"Reservists only need to draft an informal letter of nomination explaining the great support their spouse or employer has provided," said Lt. Col. Barb Henson, 446th AW executive officer. "Please include lots of details!"

Reservists should submit that letter to their unit commanders. The nomination, in a simple memorandum format, is evaluated in relation to other nominations by a board

Both spouses and employers must be connected to the Reservist for the entire reporting period of Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2011 Spouses who are also military are not eligible.

The nominations for both awards are due by close of business Jan. 9. Submit your nominations to Henson. The evaluation board will be in February and the winners will be recognized at the banquet.

This is a great opportunity to recognize those who support our military careers the most. For more information, contact Henson at 982-5527 or send her an e-mail at
