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 & 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 QAIC.
Wing Commander David Cox tweeted that the Award is “so deserved”.
Dr Reis literally arrived home at 2000 h the night before from RAF Lossiemouth. In 2013 Dr Reis suffered a stroke which temporarily affected his speech. But 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 his outstanding selfless commitment which is above and beyond the expectations of a Civilian Instructor.
