Nominations open for Sun Military Awards
The 2014 "Millies" celebrate the amazing work carried out by our servicemen and women at home and abroad.
The countdown to the 2014 Millies began with public nominations opening for the ‘Support to the Armed Forces’ category recently (Friday).
The award recognises an organisation, individual, or a group that has given exceptional support to the forces community.
It is one of 4 awards celebrating the work carried out by service personnel and the wider service community both in the UK and around the world over the last year.
Now in their seventh year, the Millies have provided an annual opportunity to highlight the achievements and to honour the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces. This year’s ‘Millies’ will mark the ending of operations in Afghanistan with 4 specially created awards reflecting the extraordinary challenges and achievements of the men and women who have served there since the Millies began.
