    In regards to the service awards there have been a few people ask if you can order from a service award below yours for example if you are a 25 year employee and want to order from a 20 yr or 15 yr you can do that.

    In regardx to the service awards, there have been a few people asking if they can order from a service award below their own. Yes, they can. For example, xxx a 25-year employee can order from a 15 - or 20-year employee xxx.
    I don't understand what "order from a service award below yours" means.

    If you want to be a real stickler, use may instead of can:

    may = is or are permitted to
    can = has or have the physical ability to


    May can sound a little old-fashioned, though, and can is accepted everywhere.
