HONORARY MEMBER OF THE REGIMENT
1. A description of the criteria for nomination of individuals to the position of Honorary Member of the Regiment and the process for nomination to this position are as follows:
The HMOR is program is designed to recognize individuals who are not affiliated with the AMEDD Regiment, but have made significant contributions to the AMEDD. Requirements for this position are that the individual is not eligible for recognition as a DMOR but has a long and close association with the AMEDD Regiment, or has performed a significant act or service for the Regiment. The HMOR may also be used to recognize exemplary service to the AMEDD and the Army by non-AMEDD Soldiers and civilians. An example would be a departing Corps or Division Commander or Command Sergeant Major. In addition, the spouse of an individual nominated for the DMOR may be nominated for the HMOR provided they are not an AMEDD Soldier or an affiliated AMEDD civilian employee, have supported their spouse and the AMEDD, and have been married to the AMEDD Soldier or civilian for a period of at least 10 years. In this situation, a statement must be added in the DMOR cover letter. Contractors are not eligible for this recognition. Nominations should be submitted 60 days prior to the anticipated presentation date.
2. While any member of the AMEDD Regiment, to include retirees, may submit nominations for Regimental recognition to the AMEDD Regimental Office, every effort should be made to submit the nominations through the normal supervisory chain.
