There are two distinct Regimental awards programs. The lesser-known program is the Chief of Signal awards program, administered by the Regimental Special Projects Officer, Regimental Division, Office Chief of Signal. There are six types of awards -- ranging from certificates to plaques -- for Signal Regiment and non-members alike. See the Regimental NCO's on-line information for more details. The Chief of Signal awards program requires nomination and justification for the award, but it does not have any fees.
The other type of Regimental awards program is actually the program of the Signal Corps Regimental Association, a private organization. This program, familiarly known as the Orders of Mercury and Wahatchee awards, is primarily for the SCRA membership. Nominators must be SCRA members (requires membership fee) and pay for the award, depending on its level. The Orders of Mercury recipients must also be SCRA members, although SCRA membership is not required of Wahatchee recipients (outstanding volunteers). A third SCRA award is the Brevet Colonel. This is for non-government employees who have contributed to the Regiment's advancement. SCRA membership isn't required for the Brevet Colonel award. A general officer may nominate a non-government civilian for the award. See SCRA's website for details and costs for these awards.
