Do you know an inspirational Oregon woman veteran?
The Oregon Woman Veteran of the Year Award recognizes a woman veteran who has compiled a record of exemplary service as a veteran and an outstanding member of the community.
This award is part of the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs ongoing effort and commitment to respond to women veterans’ issues where women veterans live, work, and enjoy the freedoms of our great country, and to encourage greater participation in the semi-annual women veterans’ conferences.
The selection criteria focuses on the nominee’s achievements as a veteran, in support of veterans, and her commitment to women veterans’ issues, and as a citizen in service of her hometown, the State of Oregon, and the United States of America.
We encourage submissions from veterans, Veterans Service Organizations (VSO’s), County Veteran Service Officers (CVSO’s), and other veterans groups.
The nomination form must be submitted in writing by March 30. The award will be presented and recognized at the 2018 Oregon Women Veterans Conference, April 26 – 28 in Sunriver, Oregon.
Nomination forms are available to download or by calling (503) 373-2264 to request the form be emailed, faxed or mailed to you. Forms may be requested by mail at:
