My Explorer Gold award application has been approved, and I will be presenting the award Tomorow Evening to him.
Being a military Explorer post with the Air National Guard, I also was able to get a Personal Congratulations letter from Major General Shepperd, the Director of the Air National Guard. (The Commanding officer of the ANG Forces!)
Our local representative, Mark Souder (R), IN sent his congratulations from Washington, as well.
One Question for the list: My mail program crashed a few weeks back, and I lost my archives (Back up early, back up often, I know.....), but someone on the list told me to notify them when I got the award if I did not get the certificate. No, I did NOT get a certificate, only the medal. Isn't there supposed to be a knot, as well?
Thanks for all the help and support, I'll let you know Wednesday how things went.
If anyone wants to see a neat awards presentation, stop by the Air National Guard Base at Baer Field Tuesday, 15 April at 7:00PM. It's gonna be neat.
