Governor Matt Mead and The Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation have announced they’re accepting nominations for the Citizen Service Before Self Honors, which recognize and honor ordinary Americans who become extraordinary through their courage and selflessness.

Governor Mead and past Medal of Honor recipients encourage individuals to nominate any United States civilian who’s clearly demonstrated a willingness to sacrifice for others.  The nominee’s actions must epitomize the concept of “service before self” and must be performed “above and beyond” one’s professional area of responsibility or conduct.

You can nominate someone by completing the nomination form online via the Citizen Service Before Self Honors website at

The deadline for nominations is Friday, Dec. 28, 2012.
