Armed Services YMCA Annual Angels of the Battlefield Awards Gala

Recognizing military heroism on the front lines

The Angels of the Battlefield Awards Gala is an Armed Services YMCA signature event that honors the individual men and women on the front lines who are saving lives and have demonstrated extraordinary courage.  Each year, the Armed Services YMCA recognizes a single individual from each military branch for their accomplishments on the front lines.

The 11th Annual Angels of the Battlefield Awards Gala will honor medics, corpsmen and pararescuemen who administer life-saving medical treatment and trauma care on the battlefield. 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. Angels is the only event which recognizes the frontline actions of military medical personnel.

The Armed Services YMCA works with the military Services to select a medic, corpsmen, and pararescuemen from each. The honorees receive awards on behalf of their fellow medical professionals for their dedication and commitment to the mission.
