1. To help perpetuate the history and traditions of the Regiment and enhance unit morale and esprit, Army Regulation 600-82, The US Army Regimental System, provides for the recognition of individuals who have contributed to the Regiment. To ensure all deserving individuals are recognized, this program is divided into three separate categories, Distinguished Member of the Regiment (DMOR), Honorary Member of the Regiment (HMOR), and Friend of the Regiment (FOR).
2. A description of the criteria for nomination of individuals to the position of Distinguished Member of the Regiment and the process for nomination to this position are as follows:
The DMOR is normally reserved as a retirement recognition. Requirements for this recognition are that the officer, warrant officer, enlisted Soldier or civilian must be a member of, and affiliated with the AMEDD Regiment (Active, Reserve, National Guard, or retiree). The DMOR program is designed to recognize truly outstanding Soldiers and civilians with a long and distinguished AMEDD career who have significantly contributed to the proud heritage of the Army and the AMEDD Regiment. The spouse of an individual nominated for the DMOR may be nominated for the HMOR provided they have supported the AMEDD and have been married to the AMEDD Soldier or civilian for a period of at least 10 years. A statement must be added to the DMOR cover letter . The exception is a spouse who is an AMEDD Soldier or AMEDD civilian employee. In those cases the Soldier or civilian will be recognized upon their retirement based on their own contributions to the AMEDD. Nominations should be submitted 30 days prior to the anticipated presentation date. Contractors are not eligible to be nominated for this recognition.
3. Any member of the AMEDD Regiment, to include retirees, may submit nominations for a DMOR to the AMEDD Regimental Office. The nomination should be completed as follows:
a. A cover letter (example) which provides the nominee's name and rank or for civilians their title (Mr., Mrs., Ms, Dr.). The nominator should also provide his/her full name, mailing address, email, and phone number to assist the Regimental Office in obtaining further information, if needed. The nominator should state the proposed presentation date and specify which address the certificate should be forwarded if the nomination is approved. The nomination must also include the following statement: "There are no adverse personnel actions pending on the individual being nominated"
b. The justification for the DMOR is the retirement award write-up. For civilians, if no retirement award has been submitted, a justification of no more than two pages should be submitted with the cover letter, listing the employee's AMEDD contributions over at least the last 10 years.
c. PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER ON ANY DOCUMENT
d. The nomination and supporting documentation, if required, should be forwarded to the AMEDD Regimental Office via electronic mail at the following addresses:
