Leadership awards 
The military can't award sweet bonuses to their top junior management talent like private industry can. And if you don't happen to be in a war zone, nobody gives a rip about your medals.

So the military has to come up with other ways to recognize and show their appreciation for their outstanding junior leaders.

One such way is the presentation of leadership awards, such as the GySgt Matthew Garvey Award, presented to an outstanding marine selected by his peers for superior leadership skills.

Don't know what the prize is, but a lot of times it's a scholarship, and a lot of times it's not much more than bragging rights. But the knowledge that your hard work and effort has resulted in the esteem of your brothers and sisters in arms is the greatest and sweetest prize of all.

A word on Gunny Garvey: Gunnery Sergeant Garvey (that's E-7 for those of you who don't speak Jar) was an outstanding marine. Tragically, he lost his life as a firefighter on 9/11, attempting to save the lives of others in the World Trade Center.

The ANGLICO Foundation has named a leadership award in his honor. And they would like to fly members of Gunny Garvey's family out to present the award in person.

They can't use government money to do that. So they are asking for our help.
