Recognizing soldiers for a job well done is very important to fostering a healthy culture and improving employee morale. Everyone likes to be told they have done a good job. It is a supervisor's job to make sure this is done in a timely manner. Soldiers who are leaving BAMC should receive their award BEFORE they leave. If a soldier receives his or her award in the mail after they have left it sends a clear message their service was not that important to BAMC leadership.
