JOTW and DEFCON -1 “Can't Wait” announcement on the 2008 SemperComm Award
Here's FLASH traffic from Alix Anne Hornig at the SemperComm Foundation:
Have a “can't wait” item I was hoping you might be able to send out this
week to both DEFCON and JOTW.
Hoping you can help us get the word out about the 2008 SemperComm Award
program as we'd love to receive several more entries before judging begins
in March. Thanks very much! **Anyone can submit a nomination and all
entries are due by Friday, February 29, 2008.
The SemperComm Award is given each year to nominated active-duty military
personnel who go above and beyond the call of duty to help motivate,
entertain and otherwise lift the spirits of their fellow service members.
The SemperComm Foundation works to boost morale of our men and women
deployed to remote locations around the world, but we recognize that there
are a significant number of overseas remote bases that we can not reach
right away. While we hope to eventually reach out to all isolated bases,
the SemperComm Award is designed to recognize and honor service members who
are making personal contributions to boost the morale of fellow men and
Service personnel from each military branch, including the Coast Guard,
combatant command and field commands can be nominated for this award.
SemperComm will choose up to three awardees to be honored at our annual
Gala, set for May 22, 2008. Winners will be determined based on three
criteria: actions taken to boost the morale of fellow service members, the
remoteness of the base where they are stationed, and their desire to go
above and beyond the call of duty.

Gala and to access an entry form for this year’s SemperComm Award.
