Rylander and DeProspero Award Nominations are Open!
NDIA’s Special Operations and Low-Intensity Conflict Division (SO/LIC) is accepting nominations for the R. Lynn Rylander Award and the DeProspero Lifetime Achievement Award. We invite you to consider and nominate a high-performing colleague, mentor, or leader for one of these prestigious awards.
The R. Lynn Rylander Award is presented annually to an individual who has made distinctive contributions in the areas of Special Operations, Low-Intensity Conflict, or Irregular Warfare. Achievements may be singular or cumulative. However, in the spirit of R. Lynn Rylander’s service, the policy, guidance, leadership, or mission contributions must have been consequential – highly significant and lasting – to the SO/LIC community. The nominee’s contributions should also show support of the goals and objectives of NDIA and the SO/LIC Division as a cooperative open forum between government and industry.
The DeProspero Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes sustained, distinguished service and is presented annually to an individual who has made distinctive lifetime contributions with significant impact in the areas of Special Operations, Low Intensity Conflict, or Irregular Warfare.
Do you know someone who has contributed in a positive and lasting way through distinctive contributions in the areas of Special Operations, Low Intensity Conflict, or Irregular Warfare? Recognize your worthy colleagues by submitting a nomination form to the Awards Chair, Dana Hudson, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations are due on Tuesday, May 31, 2022.
