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.

My fellow Spectres,

 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.

Sincerely,

Your VP and brother, 

W. R. (Wild Bill) Allen

    2. Each presentation to the board will be accompanied with a short supporting narrative justifying the nomination.

    3. The proposed nominee must be a member in good standing of the association.
