In light of the July 4th holiday, Alachua County would like to celebrate Community Support Services' Veteran Service Officer Jim Lynch, who received the Presidents Award given annually at the National Association of County Veterans Service Officers (NACVSO) Conference, this year held in Reno, NV, June 5-9, 2006. This award is given yearly to one member of the Association for "outstanding accomplishments and professionalism" and for "exemplary service to veterans."
As stated by NACVSO, their mission is to actively promote the rights of veterans and dependents of the United States through a progressive legislative platform. They work collaboratively with the Department of Veterans Affairs and other nationally chartered veterans organizations to assure that veterans and their dependents receive the entitlements they deserve for the sacrifices they endured.
Jim was given the award during the annual banquet by current President Ann G. Knowles, County Veterans Service Officer from Sampson County, NC. The award came as a complete surprise to Jim who was very honored to receive it. County Manager Randall H. Reid in talking about Jim said, “Jim is a true advocate for the veteran community of Alachua County, and Alachua County is proud of his work and his accomplishments.”
