CHAPTER 10 AWARDS Awards   are important s y m b o l s    of recognition   and   a   means   of   publicly recognizing extraordinary, exceptionally meritorious,  or  conspicuously  outstanding  acts of  heroism  and  other  acts  of  service  that  are above  and  beyond  that  normally  expected. In   this   chapter   we   discuss   how   award recommendations   are   prepared   using   the information contained in the  Navy  and  Marine Corps Awards   Manual,   S E C N A V I N ST 1650.1. POLICY   CONSIDERATIONS Awards  are  intended  to  recognize  truly exceptional  performance  and  valor.  The  value of  an  award  is  that  it  is  given  in  cases  only where  it  is  clearly  deserved. Awards  recognizing  specific  acts  should  be given   as   soon   as   possible   after   the   act occurred.   Recognition   of   sustained   superior performance  should  normally  be  given  at  the termination  of  the  period  during  which  that person demonstrated that performance, such as at  the  end  of  the  person’s  assigned  tour  of duty.  A  routine  end  of  tour  award  IS  NOT  a part  of  the  awards  system. ELIGIBLE    PERSONNEL Personnel   eligible   to   receive   awards include  personnel  in  the  naval  service,  the U.S.  Marine  Corps,  reserve  components,  and the  U.S.  Coast  Guard  (when  the  Coast  Guard or  units  thereof  operate  under  the  control  of the   Navy). Also  eligible  are  U.S.  Naval Academy   midshipman   and   Naval   Reserve Officer   Training   Corp   (NROTC)   midshipmen when  serving  on  active  duty. Anyone  who  meets  the  eligibility  criteria for  an  award  may  be  recommended  for  it  by any   commissioned   officer   senior   to   the individual   being   recommended. AUTHORITY   TO   APPROVE   THE NAVY   ACHIEVEMENT   MEDAL The  Secretary  of  the  Navy  has  delegated the   authority   to approve t h e    N a vy Achievement   Medal   (NAM)   to   commanders or   commanding   officers   eligible   to   wear   the Command  at  Sea  or  Command  Ashore  device, also  known  as  a  command  NAM. Under  this  policy,  the  NAM  may  only  be awarded   to   junior   officers   (LCDR   or   below) and   enlisted   personnel,   and   must   be   for special  achievement  and  NOT  for  a  person’s tour. QUOTA   SYSTEM A  quota  system  has  been  established  for issuing  command  NAMs  based  on  the  number of   billets   authorized   in   the   command’s Manpower Authorization   Document   of Authorization. The   quotas   are   computed separately  for  officers  and  enlisted  personnel. Commands   with   100   or   less   billets   are authorized  four  NAMs  per  fiscal  year. Commands  with  between  101  and  650  billets are  authorized  two  NAMs  per  each  50  billets or   fraction   thereof.   Commands   with   greater than  650  billets  are  authorized  two  NAMs  per 75  billets  for  any  fraction  over  650. RECOMMENDATION   FOR   AWARDS As  previously  stated,  a  recommendation for  an  award  may  be  submitted  by  any commissioned  officer,  senior  to  the  individual being  recommended,  having  knowledge  of  any act, achievement,   or   service   which   may warrant   the   award. A   recommendation originated   by   other   than   the   commanding 10-1
