Posted on 11/11/2004 1:33:10 PM PST by Jeff Head
Commenting directly to Mr. Head on his selection for this award, Tom Delay, the Majority Leader, wrote,
"As a respected business leader in Idaho and a key member of our Business Advisory Council, it is my pleasure to announce your selection as a 2004 Ronald Reagan Republican Gold Medal winner. As a Ronald Regean Gold Medal Winner, you distinguished yourself as a business leader who contributed to the economic health of your community. Your support of President Bushs tax cuts has the economy growing at record paces. Your willingness to share your insight and expertise, with the Republican leadership gave us the edge we needed to forge a true working partnership between business and government. This truly is our most prestigious award and one you richly deserve."Commenting on his selection for the award, Mr. Head himself indicated,
"This is not an award I either sought or expected, but it is one I accept with humility and honor. Ronald Reagan was, in my view and simply stated, the greatest American President of the 20th century, and one of the three greatest American presidents in history. Any honor or award presented to me in his memory and in memory of the ideals he exemplified is accepted with sincere gratitude, humility, and honor."
Mr. Head has worked as an engineer and manager for the last 26 years in the aircraft, power, and computer industries. He has operated his own consulting business in Southwest Idaho since 1999.
Mr. Head, who now works for the Federal Government helping secure regional infrastructure, has been involved in a number of civic activities over the last several years. In 2003, Mr. Head accepted a National Republican Committee Leadership Award based on his selection and work as an Honorary State Chairman to the Republican Bussiness Advisory Committee. In 2001, Mr. Head was selected as the 2001 Person of the Year for the FreeRepublic online forum, the largest and most influentioal conservative forum and activism site on the web. In the summer of 2001 Mr. Head was very involved in the Klamath Basin Water Crisis, working tirelessly for the farmers in the Klamath Basin of Oregon and California to face down the abject violation of those farmers' rights due to a faulty and political Endangered Species Act decision that year.
Over the last three years, Mr. Head has authored and self-published a best selling military techno-thriller series of novels called The Dragon's Fury Series. That complete series of novels is available in Trade Paperback form at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell's, BAMM, and other places online.
Jim...your work here on FR makes things like this for many Freepers possible...thank you my friend, and God bless you and yours, particularly on this veterans day...for your own service while "On Duty", and since, while you have remained on duty as a citizen.
Never imagined or expected it.
How many recipients are there in a typical year?
Congratulations Jeff, you certainly deserve it.
JK, Jeff, congrats. I would say from what I know about you, you deserve it.
Congrats Jeff. You certainly earned it and a lot more. We're happy to have known you when.....lol!
Very cool Mr.Head. You Rock!
Don't throw it over the fence!!!....
Congratulations on your award.
I am just so darn proud of you. You absolutely deserve this.
Congrats!....You gotta feel as warm as holding one's first born!
Even better to be surprised and blind-sided by something good.
I'm proud to be among such a fine bunch of folks.
Way to Go Jeff bump!
Congratulations, Mr. Head! I'm curious as to who you consider as the other two great U.S. presidents; is one of them George Washington?
I have no idea how many there are...all I know is I received a phone call and a notification by mail.
Good work Jeff.
Than you all...I did not dream of or expect such an honor.
What a wonderful surprise for you then. Congrats!
Congratulations my friend and old buddy in the enviral wars!
Congratulations! Wow! Cheers from MA!
Good job, Jeff. Keep up the great work FRiend.
Wait a minute...that "respected" part...are we talkin' about the same Jeff Head heah?
Just another Joe...I didn't know either...and still don't, I certainly do not consider myself as such anyhow.
Fantastic, Jeff, you earned it. And there is so much more to do, as Jim Robinson said here:

If you feel as strongly about this as I do, then you will agree that there's no time like the present to get started. I believe that GWB will continue doing a great job on national defense and the war, but, as we all know, we also need to start shifting some resources to beefing up our border security. How do we do this?
I bask in your glory. Congratulations my friend.
Congratulations, Jeff and thank you very much.
Congratulations, Jeff! This is truly wonderful news!!!
Thanks to you all...there are certainly many more deserving than I...so many particularly involved in the trenches during this election.
; < )
Congrats Jeff!! Big time!
A big BUMP to that.
LOL! Not a chance.
Great job, Jeff. Now, don't get cocky! :)
