Gen. Douglas MacArthur Leadership Award
The nomination window for the annual Gen. Douglas MacArthur Leadership Awards competition is now open, and U.S. Army Europe G1 will accept packets until Nov. 1. All nominees will be evaluated on their overall leadership performance during 2015. The GDMLA program was introduced in 1987 to recognize company-grade and junior warrant officers who demonstrate MacArthur’s ideals of “Duty, Honor, Country,” and have a proven record of extraordinary performance, leadership and achievement. Packets must contain a variety of pieces and GDMLA program overseers are encouraging everyone to start the process as soon as possible. The winners at the USAREUR level will move forward to compete against junior leaders from other major Army commands, where only a few select officers and warrant officers in the active, National Guard and Reserve components across the Army will receive the award.
