Many of NJ traffic handlers might have missed this. I found it in the October 2018 issue of CQ Magazine.
Our own Dave Popkins W2CC, longtime Net Manager for the New Jersey Phone Net (NJPN, 6 PM 3950 Khz) has been recognized by the President for a lifetime achievement of over 4000 hours in Army MARS (Military Auxiliary Radio System). Dave was also the head of NJ Army MARS.
He shared this recognized achievement with four other Army MARS members.
Great work, Dave.
