The Chapter Awards Committee serves to facilitate the recognition of those in the chapter, community and state who support and promote the ideals of the Chapter. In 1986, the first Veterans Service Award and Community Service Award were given. At this time, there are 3 annual awards bestowed by this committee:

The Roger Robach Award

Roger Robach was a New York State Assemblyman who was also a husband, father, and a veteran of his country's armed forces. During his terms as an elected NY State Assemblyman, he fought hard and long to see to it that veterans of all eras received their due from New York State. The veterans of Monroe County and all of NY State had no greater proponent that Roger in the State Legislature. This award was created in his memory and to honor all those who follow after him.

Community Service Award

The Community Service Award recognizes a group, organization or individual who has demonstrated a strong sense of community service and who favorably recognizes and relates to Vietnam Veterans' issues.

Veterans' Service Award

The Veterans' Service Award recognizes an individual who has demonstrated outstanding dedication in improving the condition of Vietnam Veterans and/or the community. There may be up to 3 Veterans' Service Awards presented annually.

Rori and Don Murrell Humanitarian Award

Rori and Don Murrell were very instrumental with the development of Chapter 20 in its earlier years, as well as the Veterans Outreach Center. Don made sure that the Chapter was visible in the community forum and worked tirelessly on the Between The Lines. Rori was a counselor at the Veterans Outreach Center and the VA Vet Center.

Special Recognition Award

This is awarded to an individual, group, or organization that through their single or continuous actions has favorably benefited Vietnam or other Veteran issues.

The Chapter Awards Committee includes the current Chapter Secretary who acts as Chairperson and four other members chosen by the Secretary, to include 3 past award recipients and 1 non-recipient Chapter member. Awards are presented at the Annual Dinner held in the Spring of each year.
