Angels of the Battlefield Awards

About this Event

Established in 2006, the Armed Services YMCA hosts the only awards program of its kind – honoring military medics, corpsmen and pararescuemen – representing all five branches of the U.S. Armed Services.

Each year, five Angels are recognized and applauded for their selfless courage and unwavering sacrifice while saving lives on the front lines overseas or during emergency situations here at home. The ASYMCA also presents a special Angel of Honor award to an individual or organization demonstrating distinguished and extraordinary service or advancement of the mission.

Meet the 2021 Angels of the Battlefield

The Angels of the Battlefield Award pays tribute to military medical personnel and first responders for their life-saving medical treatment and trauma care of service members, partner forces and civilians at home and abroad. The Armed Services YMCA works with the military services to select an honoree from each branch. These Angels of the Battlefield are courageous and compassionate men and women who risk everything and are often the reason many of our nation’s heroes wounded in battle or civilians in distress make it home to their families.

The name and image of the 2021 Angel of the Battlefield representing the United States Marine Corps has been withheld.
