This season, Dietz & Watson and the Ravens are continuing their joint efforts to honor active and veteran service members at every 2016 home game. If fans have a friend or family member who is currently serving or has served, people are encouraged to submit that person’s name, contact information, service number and a brief description about why the service member is being nominated.

During each home week throughout the season, one submission will be chosen as that game’s Hometown Hero, with the recipient winning tickets to the game, pre-game sideline passes and an opportunity to personally deliver a game ball to the NFL referee before the game.

SIA/DOS is receiving an influx of expedite memorandums with the incorrect

signature authority. All Expedite letters must be signed by an O-7/SES. The

only other exception is when an O-7/SES is not available to sign, the

signature authority will then go to an O-6 or the installation commander

with a justification as to why it wasn’t signed by an O-7/SES in the body of

the memo.  Within the signature block you are to put the Rank /Grade of the

signature authority. Do NOT put the Title only. SIA does not know what a

“Director” or a “Chief of Operations” means. However,  if you do include the

title, it has to include the Rank/Grade.

If these guidelines are not followed, all applications will no longer be

considered Expedite and will be processed as Routine.
