LTG Sidney T. Weinstein Award for Excellence in Military Intelligence
The nomination period for the 2021 LTG Sidney T. Weinstein Award for Excellence in Military Intelligence opens on 2 November 2020. Nominations are due no later than 5 February 2021.
In 2007 the Military Intelligence Corps mourned the loss of LTG Sidney T. Weinstein, a true MI icon fondly remembered as the Father of Modern Military Intelligence. LTG Weinstein was not only a fine officer; he was a mentor, role model, a friend to many, and a dedicated family man. In honor of his service, the MI Corps created the LTG Sidney T. Weinstein Award for Excellence in Military Intelligence. Each year the award recognizes one outstanding Military Intelligence Captain who, through his or her actions, demonstrates the values and ideals for which LTG Weinstein stood: Duty, Honor, and Country. It is meant to promote and sustain competent Military Intelligence company-grade officers for future leadership in the Army, as well as the advancement of the Military Intelligence Corps.
The Weinstein Award is intended to recognize the leadership contributions of a Captain in the field of Military Intelligence during the previous fiscal year. Eligible candidates must meet the following criteria:
(1) Be a Captain (CPT/O-3) in the US Army during the period of eligibility. Nominees must not be promotable at the time of nomination submission. Participation is open to Military Intelligence Captains of the Active Army, Army National Guard and US Army Reserve.
(2) Possess either an MI Officer Area of Concentration (AOC) or a 15C/35 AOC.
(3) Be fully eligible for continued service for at least one year after award presentation (i.e. through June 2022). Award cannot be given posthumously.
(4) Must not be under unfavorable personnel action or UCMJ.
(5) Meet height and weight standards specified in Army Regulation (AR) 600-9.
(6) Maintain a current passing grade on the Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT). The APFT requirement is waived for deployed nominees who are unable to take the APFT.
