Legendary Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer will be awarded the Army’s Outstanding Civilian Service Medal in recognition of his contribution to telling Soldiers’ stories in such films as “Black Hawk Down”, “Pearl Harbor”, and the upcoming “Horse Soldiers”.
The presentation will take place at the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the Association of the United States Army (GLAC AUSA) annual Army Ball on June 24 at the Westin Hotel In Long Beach, California. Brigadier General Jeffery Broadwater will present the medal to Mr. Bruckheimer on behalf of the Chief of Staff of the Army. BG Broadwater is commanding general of the National Training Center and Ft. Irwin.
The Outstanding Civilian Service Medal is one of the highest awards that the Department of the Army can bestow upon a civilian. The Army is recognizing Mr. Bruckheimer for his significant dedication to supporting not just Soldiers but to all military and first responders through his films and television productions.
The 2017 GLAC AUSA Army Birthday Ball celebrates the 242nd anniversary of the Army. It is one of Southern California’s largest public events to recognize and honor local Soldiers for their service.
