Armed Services YMCA Annual Angels of the Battlefield Awards Gala
Recognizing military heroism on the front lines
The Angels of the Battlefield Awards Gala acknowledges medics, corpsmen, and pararescuemen for their life-saving medical treatment and trauma care on the battlefield. The ASYMCA works with the military services to select an honoree from each branch. These Angels of the Battlefield are compassionate men and women who risk everything and are often the reason why so many of our nation’s heroes wounded in battle have made it home to their families and communities.
The military community, along with individual and corporate supporters come together to honor military medics, corpsmen, and pararescuemen for their courageous and compassionate actions. The awards ceremony will take place on November 2, 2017 in Arlington, Virginia. Angels is the only event which recognizes the frontline actions of military medical personnel.
