SPECTRE ASSOCIATION GUNNER JACK AWARD
Thanks to the benevolence of one of the Charter Members of the Spectre Association, James “Gunner Jack” Jackson, we are pleased to announce the establishment of an award to recognize those individuals who perform ‘above and beyond’ to further the ideals set forth in the association by-laws: show a love of country, patriotism, dedication to the Association and fellow Gunshipers’, and who represent the Association to those outside our enclave.

Reunion time is just around the corner and we still have some unfinished business to attend to, namely finding a worthy brother to receive the Gunner Jack Award for this year. I know how busy we have been but for just a moment think of someone of us, it doesn't matter who, and submit their name and reason you think they are worthy of the honor.
Just in case you have forgotten what the Gunner Jack Award stands for, it's for Spectres "who perform ‘above and beyond’ to further the ideals set forth in the association by-laws: show a love of country, patriotism, dedication to the Association and fellow Gunshipers’, and who represent the Association to those outside our enclave."
These nominees do not have to be eligible for the Nobel Peace Prize, or have been discoverer's of a cure for cancer, they just have to be the kind of folks we are proud to know.
Take a minute and send me an email or call and let's get some nominations in.
Your VP and brother,
W. R. (Wild Bill) Allen
Rules Governing the Award
Basis for Selection
This award is based on ‘JACKS’ founding guidelines;
Nominees can be submitted any time during the year, but before 1 August to the Association Vice-President. Nominations can be in the form of e-mails or letter. Nominations should be for the activities carried on throughout most of the year and not just one event, although an event can be used to illuminate activities. Final approval of the award recipient is only accomplished with ‘Gunner Jack’s’ concurrence and approval while he is still alive.
