12/11/2013 - MCGHEE TYSON AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE -- The I.G. Brown Training and Education Center announced recently that it extended the submission deadline for nominations in naming its last undedicated building here on campus.

Col. Tim Cathcart, commander of the TEC, said the revised, February 1, 2014 deadline for nominee packages provides a last, additional window of opportunity to "submit individuals of prominence and those whose careers or actions were important and well known to McGhee Tyson Air National Guard Base."

A board will convene that will then recommend which nominee to send forward for consideration to higher headquarters.

"This is among our most enduring honors we bestow, and this building dedication is located where we educate and influence many Air Force future enlisted leaders," said Cathcart. "We want to consider all nominees worthy of this honor."

The brick, multi-story building was built in the early 90's in the midst of a phased, multi-million dollar construction project of what is today's modern TEC campus. Since that time, officials said all other campus buildings have been associated with strong supporters of the TEC, including its founding Commander, Col. Ed Morrisey and first Deputy Commandant, Chief Master Sgt. Paul H. Lankford, among other key people.

Nominations must be in accordance with AFI 36-3108, Memorialization Program and Ceremonies. For more info contact Chaplain, Lt. Col. Ira Campbell at DSN 266-3526, commercial 865-336-3526 or
