Honoree Nomination

Since 1998, the University of Utah Veterans Day Committee has selected Utah veterans to be honored in a special military commemoration ceremony and luncheon.  Nominations are currently being accepted for this year’s event, which will be held on Monday, November 11, 2019.  Nominations are accepted for individuals residing in Utah who served or serve in the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard or National Guard; on active duty or the reserves; for any length of time; in any location; and who have not been separated from these services without an honorable discharge.  Each year, the committee selects eleven honorees based on noteworthy honor, courage, commitment, and sacrifice during their military service to our nation, but decorations for valor are not required.

Instructions:  Because selections are based only on the nominee’s military service, it is important to provide as much detail regarding the nominee’s service in the military as possible. Documentation to verify the nominee’s service and awards is required. Additional supporting documentation is welcome. Please fill out the form completely, attaching additional sheets or uploading additional documents as necessary. Each item on the form will expand to accommodate additional text when filled out online or with Microsoft Word.  Neatly hand-written nominations are accepted via mail or via email as scanned documents. The selection of honorees is expected to be completed by September 15, 2019.  Please direct any inquiries to the University of Utah Veterans Support Center at 801-587-7722.
