THE ENLISTED AIDE OF THE YEAR AWARD

The Enlisted Aide of the Year Award was created to recognize outstanding enlisted aides who have shown exemplary service, management skills, community leadership, and superior technical knowledge. High-ranking military officers from all branches of service rely on their Enlisted Aides to ensure their success accomplishing their primary military and official duties.

Only the best culinary specialists are selected to be Enlisted Aides, so being the very best in their service is a life-changing professional achievement. This award includes a service commendation medal as an indication that the winner was the top of the hundreds who serve in this capacity.

In 2024, the Enlisted Aide of the Year will be determined ahead of the Red Wine & Blues event, and the winner will be celebrated on stage that evening.
