The Good Neighbor Awards recognize individuals and organizations for exceptional contributions resulting in a better quality of life for military members and/or enhancement of Korean-American relations. Individuals and organizations are recognized at the local, regional and national levels, depending on the nature of their contributions. Award nominees must be Korean individuals or organizations. They are nominated by one of the U.S. Forces Korea component commands or a staff element of UNC/CFC/USFK headquarters. A narrative justification is submitted on behalf of each nominee, explaining their contributions to Korean-American relations.

Nominations on the national level are reviewed by a panel of senior USFK officials. This panel ranks the nominations and forwards finalists through the UNC/CFC/USFK Chief of Staff to the Commander for final selection of awardees. Awardees are honored through the Good Neighbor Dinner and Recognition Ceremony each May. This ceremony is a small token of appreciation to our Korean friends and neighbors who have generously given their time and efforts to support activities that foster good will, mutual respect and better understanding between our two great nations. The men and women of USFK salute and hold their "Good Neighbors" in high esteem. - USFK Commander
