Andrew Tilghman of Army Times will receive an Honorable Mention for the 26th annual Gerald R. Ford Prize for Distinguished Reporting on National Defense. The award recognizes journalists whose high standards for accuracy and substance help foster a better public understanding of the National Defense.
This year, the awards will be presented by Steve Ford, son of the late President Gerald R. Ford and Chairman of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Foundation, at the National Press Club luncheon on June 3. Following the presentation of the award, David Gergen, senior political analyst for CNN who has served as an adviser to four U.S. presidents, has graciously agreed to address the luncheon gathering this year. Also, as a part of President Ford’s Centennial celebration, Michigan’s 6th District Congressman Fred Upton, the Chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, will make remarks on the President’s 100th Birthday.
