On April 25 at the Army Heritage and Education center in Carlisle, PA, Clan Irwin Association partnered with PA. S.A.M.S. Camp 1739, to present military centric Presidents Volunteer Service Awards to five Soldiers, four Marines, a family, a CIA volunteer, a camp 1739 member and the Lewis B Puller Marine Corps League Det. # 524 with service awards. Bill Irwin C.I.A. PA commissioner MC’d the event.
April has been a very productive month for Clan Irwin Assoc/Mid Atlantic and Pennsylvania. Our association no longer has to seek assistance from outside organizations to petition for the prestigious national Presidents Volunteer Service Award, as C.I.A. Mid-Atlantic/PA has recently been designated a certifying organization by the president’s council.
The first outing had C.I.A. PA teaming up with PA. Scottish American Military Society Camp #1739 (which falls under Post 2 in DC) to present some volunteer awards on April 25, at the Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, PA.
The purpose of this round of awards was to honor volunteers (both in the military and those serving military families) and keep it military centric.
Part of the reasoning for this is the fact that April besides being National Volunteer Month, is also the month of the Military Child.
All of the recipients are working for the betterment of relations in the community and the improvement of quality of life for Military members and their Families.
Bill Irwin, PA Commissioner, said “Presenting this type of honor falls in line with our community outreach programs spearheaded by our Mid Atlantic commissioner Barb Edelman, as well as the Community Covenant we signed. We are showing that Clan Irwin is serving our community and supporting our military. We were honored to be in the presence of these great people. ”
The Army Heritage and Education Center and its’ Commander, Col. Matt Dawson played host for the event and presented the recipients with their awards.
