BY SANDY MILLER, CHAIR

The Bobby J Award is presented annually to a formerly homeless veteran who has exemplified commitment, embraced change, and provided inspiration to other veterans.

Bobby J was a formerly homeless veteran in recovery, living in a transitional residence, who exhibited great courage not only in battling his addiction, but also in his battle with Agent Orange-related cancer. Bobby J never gave up the fight. He died in December 2001.

Nominees for the Bobby J Award must meet the following criteria:

• Must have been homeless

• Must have completed a homeless domiciliary or transitional program

• Must have obtained and maintained housing in the community for at least a year

• Must be nominated by a VVA entity

Those who submit nominations must include:

• A copy of the nominee’s DD-214 or other proof of military service

• Proof of program completion

• A written nomination letter of not more than 500 words

Nominations will be accepted until June 15. Send nomination packets to: Sandra Miller, HVC Chair, P.O. Box 557, Douglassville, PA 19518

The Homeless Veterans Committee will present a life membership in either VVA or AVVA. For additional information, email smiller@vva.org
