Here’s some photographic evidence of my presence yesterday morning in Reno, Nevada, where I was pleased and humbled to receive a Major Award, presented to me on behalf of two million members of The American Legion.
The official name of the award is The National Commander’s Media and Communications Award. It’s a very handsome plaque that acknowledges my modest efforts to celebrate the men and women of The United States Armed Forces. Given the list of prior recipients, I strongly suspect there may have been some kind of oversight in this year’s selection process, but regardless, I’m keeping it.
I really am deeply flattered by the American Legion’s decision to honor me in this way – far more than my wardrobe might indicate – and very appreciative of the chance to address 9,000 patriotic Americans in one place.
PS. In other news, there’s still time to nominate and vote for a Hard Hat Hero. Winner gets a trip for four to Santa Barbara in mid-October, where I’ll be loitering on stage and saying unforgettable while enjoying frosty beverages. Details at >Procore Hard Hat Hero.
