A Commendation

This past weekend the boys and I accepted, on John’s behalf, the above Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, given to John for some of the work he had done and was doing as an officer in the Navy Reserves. The inscription reads:

“for meritorious service while serving as modeling and simulation intelligence analyst lead, Navy Reserve Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI) 2109 from April 2008 to July 2010. Displaying outstanding initiative and direct personal involvement, Lieutenant Smith expertly led an analysis team of five sailors in the verification and validation of four high priority naval surface-to-air missile simulation models for the Farragut Technical Analysis Center. Additionally, he developed a two-day training course in infrared technologies that was attended by over 20 ONI active component intelligence analysts at a cost savings of over $40,000 to ONI. By his noteworthy accomplishments, perseverance, and devotion to duty, Lieutenant Smith reflected credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.”
