Foreword Recognizing DISTINGUISHED SERVICE


Each year, we recognize members of our team who have distinguished themselves through exemplary service and impacted our program in a positive way. It is very important to remember that the RCSU (NW) team includes our full and part-time staff (military & civilian), our cadets, their parents, our Sponsors, our affiliated units and, of course, our League Partners. Without this strong team we would be very hard pressed to deliver such an extensive and dynamic program across our vast geographical area of responsibility. It is with this in mind that we must make every effort to ensure that those who go above and beyond the call of duty are identified to the chain of command and recognized for their distinguished service. We accomplish this important mission through our tiered and robust Honours and Awards (H&A) system which allows us to select the appropriate level of recognition to suit each circumstance. Tiers 2 & 3 include our CO Certificates of Achievement, CO Awards of Excellence and CO Commendations. Tier 1 is comprised of CF awards including but not limited to command commendations. CF award nomination timeframes vary depending on the award. For example, nominations for the various command commendations and the Meritorious Service Medal (MSM) can be submitted any time while calls for CF Recognition Day and the Order of Military Merit (ORMM) occur in the December to January timeframe annually. RCSU (NW) members have been selected to receive the most prestigious CF awards available including the VCDS Commendation, the CDS Commendation, the MSM and the ORMM. All H&A nominations are reviewed by the H&A Committee and must be approved by the Commanding Officer. This booklet is aimed at raising the level of awareness of everyone in the chain of command regarding H&A to ensure that distinguished service does not go unrecognized. To this end, we have compiled a consolidated package including available awards and scholarships, nomination package guidelines and sample nominations. Please remember that a well written and complete nomination package is vital to the success of your nomination. Nominations for CF awards must be staffed through our Regional Commander to NDHQ and must include a cover letter (1 page), a narrative (1 page), a citation (max 80 words) and editable electronic copies of all files (MS Word). We will generate the members MPRR and a form DND 2448 to complete the nomination package prior to H&A Committee review. On behalf of our H&A Committee, I thank you for taking the time to submit your nominations thereby ensuring that worthy individuals receive the recognition that they so richly deserve. If you are considering a nomination and have questions or require assistance please contact myself or our H&A Committee Secretary, Lt (N) Lloyd to discuss your nomination in confidence. Major D. J. West H&A Committee Chair For Commanding Officer

Nominations for Order Of Military MeritORMM


Refs: A. 5401-23 (Mil Pers Svcs 6) 9 Feb 12 (PDF to be provided) B. VCDS Gp Instruction 5027-1 Annexes D and E (PDF to be provided) 1. Subject award is granted annually to recognize the most deserving members of the CF. The order consists of three levels (Commander, Officer and Member) linked directly to merit and level of responsibility of the nominee. ORMM is our highest and most prestigious means of recognizing distinguished service. Nominees have typically demonstrated excellent performance throughout a solid career. As outlined in para 3 of ref A, the VCDS Group Allocation includes one MMM set aside for an officer of the Cadet Instructors Cadre. 2. VCDS has requested that C Res & Cdts submit at least one nomination to be considered annually as part of the allocation given to the VCDS group. Through the H&A Committee you are encouraged to submit members you feel are deserving for review and onward transmission. It must be understood that incomplete packages will not be forwarded. 3. Your submission should include the following: a. b. c. Cover Letter: The nomination will be submitted under cover of a letter addressed to D Cdts & JCR; DND 2448: (PDF to be provided) Narrative: compose the narrative for readers who are unfamiliar with the members occupation and element. Acronyms and obscure terminology shall not be used. The narrative should not include a list of the members postings, but should highlight accomplishments of conspicuous merit and exceptional military service. Annexes or attachments, such as letters of recognition or appreciation are not permitted with nominations to the ORMM. Supervisors must ensure significant accomplishments are captured in the narrative; Members Personnel Record Resume (MPRR): The MPRR must be verified as complete and correct. A copy of the MPRR is to be attached to the nominations; Include an electronic copy of the nomination on a disc, CD ROM or email via entrust, which will permit minor corrections and electronic record keeping.

d. e.

4. Your submission will be forwarded to D Cdts & JCR so that they may be submitted to VCDS for inclusion in the broader VCDS Group submission. This in no way precludes regions from submitting additional nominations through their Regional Commanders to be included as part of other group allocations (i.e. CLS, CMS, CAS lists) if you so desire. Note that while one MMM has been specifically set aside within the VCDS Group for the CIC, in past years, the submissions to VCDS for deserving CIC officers has resulted in more than one CIC officer being appointed to the Order on the same list and appointments at the OMM level (vice MMM). Therefore, multiple nominations from regions and nominations at the OMM level are also welcome. While only one MMM has been set aside, all deserving nominations will be staffed forward for consideration.
