     The USS Salamonie's own John Moliere has been selected for several awards in
the last few years.​
     A panel of senior federal and commercial executives chose John P. Molière for a FED100 Award sponsored by the FCW Media Group. Molière was chosen as one of the top executives from government, industry and academia who had the greatest impact on the government information systems community. His work was done on and behalf of the Veteran Business community, especially for initiating the Veterans Technology Services (VETS) GWAC (Veterans Governmentwide Acquisition Contract) by working with the VA, GOFPP and OMB to secure the Executive Order (E.O.) 13360 to provide and strengthen prime and subcontracting opportunities in federal contracting for service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSB).
     In November of 2016 he was selected as the recipient of the John K. Lopez Lifetime Achievement Award.
    And at the 2019 National Veterans Small Business Coalition's annual conference he was the recipient of the 2019 Gordon H. Mansfield Award.
    Needless to say, the USS Salamonie Association and it's members are extremely proud of John.
