Gunner Jack Award


Thanks to the benevolence of one of the Charter Members of the Spectre Association, James “Gunner Jack” Jackson, we are pleased to announce the establishment of an award to recognize those individuals who perform ‘above and beyond’ to further the ideals set forth in the association by-laws: show a love of country, patriotism, dedication to the Association and fellow Gunshipers’, and who represent the Association to those outside our enclave.


Rules Governing the Award

  • Any award made cannot reduce the endowment funding. 
  • Additional donations can be made to the original endowment through the Association Treasurer.
  • Selected award winners will be announced at the annual reunion.  If an award winner is not selected in a given year, funds that would have been awarded will be added to the endowment.
  • Award funds will be from the earned monies of the endowment.
  • The selection process:
  1. Nominees can be submitted by any member to the Association Board prior to 1 August each year, 
  2. Each presentation to the board will be accompanied with a short supporting narrative justifying the nomination.
  3. The proposed nominee must be a member in good standing of the association.


Basis for Selection

This award is based on ‘JACKS’ founding guidelines; 

  • Love of Country, 
  • Patriotism, 
  • Dedication to fellow Spectre’s,
  • Dedication to the Association, 
  • Altruistic endeavors that serve the Gunship and Gunship Brethren.



Nominees can be submitted any time during the year, but before 1 August to the Association Vice-President.  Nominations can be in the form of e-mails or letter.  Nominations should be for the activities carried on throughout most of the year and not just one event, although an event can be used to illuminate activities.  Final approval of the award recipient is only accomplished with ‘Gunner Jack’s’ concurrence and approval while he is still alive.
