When First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden launched Joining Forces in April, the national initiative’s purpose was made perfectly clear. Even though one percent of Americans are fighting the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, 100 percent of Americans must unite to support our troops and their families.
Six months later, with Joining Forces still going strong, it’s time to recognize a special group of valiant Americans who sacrifice so much for our freedom. That’s where you come in.
The Joining Forces Community Challenge is awarding several prestigious prizes to recognize citizens, communities, schools, non-profits, faith-based institutions, philanthropic organizations, and local governments for their efforts in supporting military families. According to the Joining Forces Community Challenge website, these are non-monetary awards.
If you know someone who deserves recognition for their efforts to support our troops and military families, or perhaps feel that you are deserving of a prize, please click here and review the Required and Optional Submission Materials before sending a nomination.
