   At the ceremony, in recognition of his 30 years of support to Dragon Warrior, Brevard
   County Civilian-Military Community Relations Council Foundation Chairman Dave
   Spain also received The Office of the Secretary of Defense Medal for Exceptional Public
   Service. This award is the Office of the Secretary of Defense’s highest level public
   service award. The award was established to recognize non-career federal employees,
   private citizens and foreign nationals for their contribution, assistance or support of
   activities for the U.S. Armed Services.

   The Brevard County Civilian-Military Community Relations Council sponsors the
   Dragon Warrior exercises that simulate realistic settings where attachés can apply the
   skills they’ve acquired.

   Students conduct themselves as if they are visiting a foreign country and are placed in a
   variety of situations they might encounter in the field, including customs, dinners and
   receptions, official visits, foreign news interviews and law enforcement scenarios.
