In accordance with AR 608-1, all individuals providing volunteer service to USAREC must have a signed Volunteer Agreement on file with the organization in which they are volunteering.

Reminder - When a Soldier is retiring or PCSing, someone should submit paperwork for a certificate or award for his/her spouse.


Spouse award packets should arrive at HQ USAREC at least six weeks prior to desired presentation date and contain the following:

  • Narrative that explains what was done, significance of the contribution(s), and number of volunteer hours contributed to the cause.
