Comment for discussion: Some MOC don't get the nomination process. Why would they leave their slate completely empty if there are qualified applicants? Ignorance? Parochialism? Case in point after checking with VA MOC to see if they would nominate USMMA candidates outside their congressional district, they responded yes. Packaged was assembled and overnighted to MOC in Oct. On March 26 they published list of nominees. DS not on list, in fact no one was nominated to USMMA from the district. I think they just don't get it. They must believe that they are Judge, Jury and Executioner. BTW never received email nor letter stating any reason why a nom was not granted. I am attempting to close with MOC to see their side of story- confused as they may be.
