On August 19th, 2007 Lt Col James L. Shaw, Jr (Jim Shaw) announces his intent on CAP Talk to create a Medal of Valor Association.
“I have been asked to help start a Medal of Valor Association. The Association will be open to any members who have received the BMV or SMV and in some older cases the Distinguished Service Award. It was used as such in the 1950s. The association will have a couple of defined purposes such as small scholarships, networking and such. Several recipients have allready (sic) been contacted and are on board with the idea. Former National Commander BrigGen Rich Anderson (SMV), Lt Col ShirleyJones (BMV), Lt. Col Todd Engelman (SMV), Lt. Col. Richard Greenwood (SMV), and a few others I dont (sic) have the business cards readily available for.
If you know of any members who are still in CAP or not please send me a PM with contact info.”

Deputy Commander, Group 3
