 Surface Warrior Hall of Fame

The Surface Warrior Hall of Fame recognizes and memorializes former members of the SDDC Surface Warrior Community, which includes both Soldiers and Civilians from the Command Group, Headquarters, Brigades, Battalions, and Reserve Components who have made a significant and enduring contribution to the Community and the Army. The components listed above share a common heritage and a mission of providing critical support to Soldiers and the U.S. Army. The SDDC Surface Warrior Hall of Fame's intent is to preserve the history of SDDC and give all members a sense of heritage, honor, pride and belonging.

 Hall of Fame Eligibility

Membership in the Surface Warrior Hall of Fame is open to any Service Member or Department of Defense Civilian with a previous assignment to the Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command, whether assigned at SDDC headquarters or its subordinate organizations. Persons may be nominated regardless of their rank or grade. Nominees are only eligible for induction if their most recent period of service in SDDC ended four or more years prior to the opening of the nomination period. DoD contractor employees are not eligible for nomination for contributions made in their contractor employee capacity. This does not prevent the nomination of former Service Members or DoD civilian employees who are employed by a DoD contractor after leaving federal service; such a nomination must be based on contributions made to SDDC during the nominee's federal service.

 How to Nominate

A completed nomination form (see below) must be submitted to the Hall of Fame Committee by the closing of the nomination period to be considered. Late or incomplete forms will not be considered.
