Senior Army HR Leaders, AG Corps Retirees, and Friends of the AG Corps,
I am sending this announcement on behalf of COL (Ret) Robert L. Manning, President, Adjutant General’s Corps Regimental Association (AGCRA).
The National Executive Council (NEC) of the AGCRA approved renaming the AG Corps Regimental Warrant Officer of the Year Award. Starting 23 June 2017, Warrant Officers selected as the Regimental Warrant Officer of the Year will now receive the CW5 Daniel J. Logan, Jr. Medal for Distinguished Achievement. Winners were previously presented the LTG Timothy J. Maude Medal for Distinguished Achievement.
The purpose of this award is to annually recognize an AG Corps Warrant Officer who best understands CW5 Logan’s contributions and values in his HR support of Soldiers, Commanders, Families, and the Army during the previous calendar year. Any Branch 420 WO1 – CW3 Warrant Officer can compete for this award. The nominee must be a member of the active Army, National Guard, or Army Reserve as of 30 June of each calendar year. Nominations are due to the Adjutant General School each year by the first of February with the winner recognized at the National AG Ball in Columbia, SC. This year’s award presentation is 23 June 2017 at the DoubleTree Hotel and Convention Center. Award recipient’s photo will be displayed at the Adjutant General School and their name added to the plaque hanging in the AG Hall of Honor. Award recipients will also be published in “1775”, the AGCRA Journal Magazine.
