(R-CT-02)


IOP '06.  To Congressman Rob Simmons (R-CT-02), who, as a pioneer in the 1990’s, won his first Golden Candle as a Lieutenant Colonel commanding an open source unit, later  officially recognized as the “Best Small Unit in the US Army Reserve.  As a Congressman, elected in 2000, he has been diligent and faithful to the Republic in pressing for open source intelligence (OSINT) reform across both the defense and the homeland security communities.  There is no more influential champion for public intelligence and open source information exploitation  serving the U.S. Government today.
