MI captain award nominations sought

Nominations are being accepted for the 2013 Weinstein Award through March 15, 2013. To be eligible, a candidate must be a military intelligence captain in the active Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard. He or she must have performed actions which positively promote, impact, advance and bring honor to the MI profession during Jan. 1 – Dec. 31, 2012.

The candidate must possess either an MI Officer Area of Concentration or a 15C AOC, be fully eligible for continued service for at least one year after award presentation, through September 2014, and not be in a promotable status at the time of nomination submission. No posthumous awards will be presented. Candidates also must meet the height and weight standards specified in Army Regulation 600-9, maintain a current passing grade on the Army Physical Fitness Test (waived for deployed nominees unable to take the APFT), and must not be under an unfavorable personnel action. Recipients of the Weinstein Award are recognized annually at a luncheon during the MI Corps Hall of Fame Week in September.

In 2007, the Lt. Gen. Sidney T. Weinstein Award for Excellence in Military Intelligence was established to recognize the outstanding achievements of one Army captain within the MI community who embodies the values and ideals for which the late Weinstein stood. Weinstein, who passed away in 2007, is fondly remembered as the father of modern military intelligence. More than just a fine officer, Weinstein was a leader, mentor, role model, friend and dedicated family man. He once said, about MI Soldiers, “[You] got to be tactically and technically proficient. But by God — duty, honor, country is not a bumper sticker.”

Nominations for the 2013 Weinstein Award must be received not later than March 15.
