1. PURPOSE. This command is dedicated to ensuring that all soldiers, noncommissioned officers, and officers who distinguish themselves through exceptional achievement or service, special skills or qualification, or acts of heroism or valor receive the appropriate tangible recognition through an effective awards program. Every member within HHC must adhere to and enforce the guidelines established below to ensure timely, appropriate recognition for deserving personnel.

2. PROCEDURES. All award recommendations will be prepared in accordance with the examples in this SOP, and forwarded to the Company Commander through the First Sergeant for recommendation and signature. Recommendations with clerical errors or those without substantial justification will be immediately returned to the submitting section or platoon for correction. No award recommendation will normally remain in the HHC command group longer than 48 hours. Recommendations will either be returned for correction, or approved and submitted to the battalion awards clerk for further processing. All awards must be submitted prior to the desired date of presentation in accordance with the following timeline:

Battalion Coin 1 week prior

Battalion Certificate 2 weeks prior

Driver Badge 30 days prior

Army Achievement Medal 30 days prior

Army Commendation Medal 60 days prior

Meritorious Service Medal 90 days prior

Leaders failing to submit awards prior to the required submission deadlined will be counseled in writing by the Company Commander for their failure to take care of their subordinates (See Appendix A). All individuals deserving a service award will be recognized with the appropriate award prior to their PCS or ETS departure. Those individuals who are not being recommended for a PCS or ETS service award will be counseled in writing why they are not being recommended for an award. Reasons for not recommending an ETS or PCS award may include adverse administrative separation under chapter proceedings, a history of marginal or poor performance, or a history of nonjudicial punishment.
