Oklahoma City, Oklahoma —

Nominate an Unsung Hero to Be a 2012 Recipient for One of the Highest Civilian Honors


OKLAHOMA CITY – The Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation is accepting nominations for the Citizen Service Before Self Honors, which recognizes and honors Americans for extraordinary acts of courage and selflessness.

Citizen Service Before Self Honors are presented to unsung heroes the fewer than 90 living recipients of our nation’s highest award for valor - the Medal of Honor.  Citizen Service Before Self Honorees represent the values of courage, sacrifice, and selfless service.

Governor Fallin and the Medal of Honor recipients encourage individuals to nominate any U.S. civilian who has clearly demonstrated a willingness to sacrifice for others whether through a single act of extraordinary heroism at risk to one’s life or through a prolonged series of selfless acts.

The nominee’s actions must epitomize the concept of “service before self” and must be performed “above and beyond” one’s professional area of responsibility or conduct.  Citizens may submit an eligible nominee by completing the nomination form online via the Citizen Service Before Self Honors Web site.  Click here to visit the Web site.

The nomination period ends Friday, February 10, 2012.

The winners will be announced Monday, March 12, 2012, and honored at a ceremony in Arlington, VA, on Friday, March 23, 2012, in conjunction with National Medal of Honor Day.
