Tom Coughlin To Receive United States Army's Outstanding Civilian Service Award Wednesday

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is one of five people selected to receive the United States Army's Outstanding Civilian Service Award on Wednesday night during a ceremony at Whipple Field at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, Va.

The honor is the third-highest public service honor the Army can give a civilian. Courtesy of a press release, here's the citation that will be presented to Coughlin by Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond T. Odierno.

For outstanding service to the United States Army, Soldiers and families. Your consistent, outward public support of the U.S. Army and the military in general have had far reaching positive impacts on the health and morale of our service members at home and deployed overseas. Your generous outreach to servicemen and women and military families through opportunities to attend New York Giants practices and games and your visits with Soldiers have been remarkable. Your trip to Iraq and participation in the USO tour in July 2009 significantly improved the morale of our deployed Soldiers. The New York Giants players and coaches visit to Walter Reed Army Medical Center following the 2008 Super Bowl victory tremendously improved the morale of our wounded warriors and was a testament to your continued substantial support to our wounded warrior program. Your selfless, outstanding efforts have had dramatic, positive impacts on the health of the force, our Soldiers and the United States Army.

The ceremony begins at 6 p.m.
