Prestigious Award in recognition of services to the ACO

Deputy Media Officer is given a prestigious Award in Recognition for his services to the ACO
Civilian Instructor Dr. Jason Reis was awarded HM Lord-Lieutenant of Somerset’s Certificate of Meritorious Services yesterday at Wells Cathedral. He was joined by his Commanding Officer, Sqn Ldr John Radford, Wing Commander David Cox and his wife to celebrate a wonderful day. Dr Reis received this award for his work at 2467 (Nailsea) Squadron where he serves as adjutant, his wing role as Deputy Media Communications Officer and his work on the Qualified Aerospace Instructors Course at the Regional Activities Centre, MoD Boscombe Down. Wing Commander David Cox tweeted that the Award is “so deserved”. In 2013 Dr Reis suffered a stroke which temporarily affected his speech. His determination to overcome this difficulty soon saw him return to full commitment to his Air Training Corps duties despite ignoring advice from his peers to take it easy.  The Award was given for all of the above and for his outstanding selfless commitment above and beyond that expected of a Civilian Instructor.
