We are pleased to announce that the USA club, Military Vehicle Preservation Association have awarded Jan Thompson-Creamer, the KVE Public Relations Officer, the Bart Vanderveen Distinguished Service Award for her dedication and work in organising the Annual Corowa Swim-In & Military Vehicle Gathering. Jan has been attending the event for about 40 years and in 2005 the Khaki Vehicle Enthusiasts Inc. group was started to formally organise the event. Jan took on the Secretary and Public Relations Officer role from the start and is still doing it today.  Jan’s enthusiasm for the event has no bounds and she works on the organising throughout the year, encouraging enthusiasts and collectors to attend.

The MVPA started this award about 20 years ago after Bart Vanderveen, a Dutchman who was a world leading authority and historian of military vehicles, died. Bart was posthumously made the first recipient of the award which was to be given annually to a nominated person in the world who has made a valuable contribution to military vehicle preservation. Many of the past recipients are owners of large vehicle collections, museum owners, event organisers, authors of books and magazine editors on the subject, researchers, etc. from countries around the world. Jan is only the second Australian to receive the award .. and the first female!  This a tremendous accolade from afar and well deserved.
