AWARD of the INDIANA COMMENDATION MEDAL November 2014
This is to certify that on behalf of the Indiana Commander and Chief, Governor Michael Pence and the Adjutant General of Indiana, Major General R. Martin Umbarger, that Mr. Peter R. Westacott has been awarded the Indiana Commendation Medal as follows:
As part of the Air Force Art Program, Mr. Peter Westacott volunteered to produce at no fee, 3 historical paintings for the 122nd Fighter Wing. Each painting, required over 300 hours of detailed, intricate work -- over 900 hours to paint the series. These paintings included an airshow painting, an aircraft maintenance painting (hardly ever captured in paintings under the Air Force Art Program) and a painting of 3 A-10s over Fort Wayne. To enhance unit morale, Peter gave the print rights to the 122nd Fighter Wing to produce low cost prints for unit airmen to purchase. All profits from the prints went to enhance community and family programs. In order to complete the last painting with over 4,000 miles between sites, Peter established a local repoir with community leaders to obtain needed details. These relationships continue to foster an environment of community support for the base. Mr. Westacott's actions reflect great credit on himself and the Indiana Air National Guard.
Given under my hand, Col David L. Augustine, 122nd Fighter Wing Commander
