Regretfully the Western CT Military Officers Association will not be holding the Young American Awards Program this year. Our Executive Board met and after much discussion we decided the pandemic has presented us with too many restrictions and limitations. As you know, the program is built around genuine contact with the awardees, school counselors and administration, and student parents and we feel it would be impossible to do justice to the program, especially without our unique recognition of the students and their parents at our in-person military banquet.
After having a YAA function each year for over 45 years, this was obviously a difficult decision to make. But the good news is we are very much anticipating having a bigger and better Young American Awards Program in 2022!
