Please read the following guidelines to ensure you receive your awards in a timely manner:
• All nominees (Ancient Order, Honorable Order and Molly Pitcher) must be current
members of the United States Field Artillery Association. Molly Pitcher nominees are
not required to purchase a membership if their spouse is a current member in good
standing. Please include spouses’ full name and SSN last four if they are a current
USFAA member. Any nominee who is not a current member may purchase a
membership at www.fieldartillery.org.
• If you have an Approving Authority and are ready to submit the award packet, you may
submit your forms via email with a credit card payment. Once packet is reviewed, we
will contact you to let you know an estimated date of delivery. If you have questions on
how to submit an awards packet, please call our office at (580) 355-4677.
• If you do not have an Approving Authority (FA O6 or above currently in command), or
for National Guard, FA 05 or above, a Nomination Recommendation Letter must be
submitted for each nominee for all Honorable and Molly Pitcher nominees to be
approved by the Association. See Nomination Recommendation Letter Samples at
https://fieldartillery.org/awards/. Ancient Order nominees must always have a
Nomination Recommendation Letter and will be reviewed for approval by the FA
Commandant. The Commanding General of the Fires Center of Excellence of Fort Sill is
the Ancient approving authority.
• All forms needed for nominations and examples of nomination memorandums are
available online at https://fieldartillery.org/awards/. If you have any questions, please
call the Awards Desk at (580) 355-4677
• All award packets must be postmarked 30 days or more prior to the presentation date
to avoid late fees. Those postmarked within 30 days of presentation will be accessed a
25% late fee per award and those postmarked within 2 weeks of presentation will add
50% late fee per award. You may also be accessed a shipping fee due to the required
turnaround time for delivery.
If you have questions or concerns about your awards packet, please do not hesitate to contact the USFAA
National Headquarters at (580) 355-4677 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are here to serve you and want to make this a pleasant experience.
