Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – When he was nominated for the GEICO Military Service Award, Sgt. 1st Class Julio Mella, 21st Brigade Engineer Battalion, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, was honored but did not think much about it.

“There were many, many people being nominated with me,” Mella said. “I wasn’t being pessimistic, just realistic.”

The GEICO Military Service Awards Program “spotlights the valuable and lasting contributions enlisted members of the armed forces make in three specific areas of endeavor,” according to the GEICO website.

Service members can be nominated for service in drug and alcohol abuse prevention, fire safety and fire prevention or traffic safety and accident prevention. Each year, one member from each branch of the service is selected to receive the award.

AAA says as Oil Plummets Gas Prices could fall 5-10 Cents

 

AAATampa, FL – The falling price of oil dragged gas prices lower last week. The national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded is $2.30, down 1-cent from the week before, a downward trend that is likely to continue in the near future.

“The oil market suffered a ‘mini collapse’ last week, following reports of a record build in domestic crude oil,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “This will postpone the customary spring-time gas price spike. Prices could drop 5-10 cents in the short term, but this downward trend may only be temporary.”
