The U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence seeks nominations for the 2014 Lt. Gen. Sidney T. Weinstein Award for Excellence in Military Intelligence, or MI. Applications will be accepted through March 3, 2014.

To be eligible, a candidate must be a military intelligence officer of the rank of captain in the active Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard. He or she must have performed actions from Jan. 1 – Dec. 31, 2013, which positively promote, impact, advance and bring honor to the MI profession.

The candidate must possess either an MI officer area of concentration (AOC), or a 15C AOC, be fully eligible for continued service for at least one year after award presentation (i.e.through June 2014), and not in a promotable status as of the nomination date. No posthumous awards will be presented.

Candidates also must meet the height and weight standards specified in AR 600-9, maintain a current passing grade on the Army physical fitness test, or APFT (waived for deployed nominees unable to take the APFT), and must not be under an unfavorable personnel or Uniformed Code of Military Justice action.

Recipients of the Weinstein Award are recognized annually at a luncheon during the MI Corps Hall of Fame Week at Fort Huachuca.

The Lt. Gen. Sidney T. Weinstein Award for Excellence in Military Intelligence was established in 2007 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 remembered as the Father of Modern Military Intelligence.

More than just someone many considered a fine officer, Weinstein was also considered 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 2014 Weinstein Award must be received not later than March 3, 2014. Mail complete nomination packets to Command Historian, ATTN: LTG Sidney T. Weinstein Award, U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence, 1889 Hatfield St., Building 62723, Fort Huachuca, Arizona 85613-7000.
