Celebrating Excellence: AUSN Honors Naval Cadets with Patriotism Awards, Part 2

The Association of the United States Navy (AUSN) recognizes students involved in NJROTC programs during high school and college-level NROTC programs from across the United States with Patriotism Awards. Students who demonstrate honor, courage and commitment are nominated by their unit instructors and receive a certificate, letter of congratulations and medal authorized by the Navy to be worn on their uniforms.

This May, 22 cadets from 8 states, representing the finest talent from 16 naval programs, received AUSN’s special recognition.

Look back and see the recipients of the award from earlier this spring. And check out the list of all the award winners this year.
