Air Force repeats national security award honor

Released: May 5, 1997

WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- For the second consecutive year, an Air Force member has won the National Operations Security Individual Achievement Award.

Capt. Ron Brown, 613th Air Intelligence Flight, Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, won the award as a member of the 35th Fighter Wing, Misawa Air Base, Japan. He took control of the operation security program there in August 1994. He has since helped other OPSEC monitors in Pacific Air Command develop their programs.

Brown will receive his award during a luncheon May 7 in McLean, Va.

Agencies competing for this award include other services within the Department of Defense, the Central Intelligence Agency, Department of Energy, Department of Justice, Department of Transportation and the National Security Administration.

The National Operations Security Program was established by the National Security Decision Directive to support a formal operations security program for executive department and agencies.
