    I don't know if all recipients were LDS or not, but so what if they were? Utah National Guard doesn't list that as one of the qualifications. Nor do they consider it to disqualify anyone.
    There are going to be times in Utah, because of our demographics, that a majority--even a totality--of awards of this nature may be LDS. There will be other times when several non-LDS are included.
    Is someone trying to develop a case for separation of church and state over what should be a recognition of people's contributions to our state community at large?

    President Packer is certainly a positive example of a "Good Man" and certainly did earn this honor. Congratulations. Religion didn't have anything to do with it - it's the quality and character of these people chosen. Aside from that, the LDS Church has thousands and thousands of members who have good character traits, care about others and are good examples.

    Are all of the recipients of this award members of the LDS church?
