was awarded the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal during a short ceremony at Forward Operating Base Salerno, Afghanistan, November 20. According to his citation, Wallace “ensured that the 2011 Combined Federal Campaign overseas was a success by single- handedly completing 100 percent member contact and collecting $1,183 with zero administrative discrepancies. Devoting eight hours of his off duty time, he contacted 85 military and civilian personnel in less than two days guaranteeing maximum unit support for charitable organizations.”

“He is a battled hardened noncommissioned officer who brings past experience from other deployments into this theater of operation to enhance the PRT,” said U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Nicholas Parker, SECFOR platoon leader. “It was a surprise to receive this award,” stated Wallace. “It means a lot to me that the Navy thought enough of to give me an award.” The Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT Khost) is made up of more than 85 Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen and civilians. The PRT conducts counterinsurgency operations, partnering with provincial and district leadership in order to develop critical infrastructure, education, and economic initiatives, and increase the legitimacy and accountability of the Afghan government to the people, enabling reintegration and ultimately allowing transition to occur with the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.

National Report: NH Ranks Last in Protecting Kids from Tobacco

The New Hampshire Comprehensive Cancer Collaboration (NH CCC) voiced its dismay this week when a nationwide study revealed that New Hampshire is tied for last in the nation in funding programs to prevent kids from smoking. According to a national coalition of health care associations – including the American Cancer Society and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids – it is the third consecutive year in which New Hampshire has provided zero funds for tobacco prevention and cessation programs.

“Here in New Hampshire, most of our tobacco-free coalitions

have already been eliminated through lack of funding,” said Kate McNally, an NH CCC board member who serves as Program Coordinator with the Cheshire Coalition for Tobacco-Free Communities. “Even with the Tobacco Master Settlement money and tobacco tax revenues in New Hampshire – a total of $264 million – none of those funds are finding their way to the large, underserved population in New Hampshire that would benefit from tobacco prevention and control programs.” The new national report, titled “A Broken Promise to Our Children; The 1998 Tobacco Settlement 13 years later,” also noted that “New Hampshire took another step backward in the fight against tobacco by approving a 10 cent reduction in the state’s cigarette tax,” thereby “making cigarettes more affordable and appealing to kids.” Joining New Hampshire at the bottom of the national list are Connecticut, Nevada, Ohio and the District of Columbia. “Between its failure to fund tobacco prevention and the cigarette tax reduction, New Hampshire is one of the most disappointing states in the nation when it comes to fighting tobacco use,” said Matthew L. Myers, president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, c/o Foundation for Healthy Communities, 125 Airport Road, Concord, NH 03301, “To make progress,” he added, “New Hampshire’s leaders should

raise the cigarette tax and increase funding for tobacco prevention. Even in these difficult budget times, tobacco prevention is a smart investment that saves lives and saves money by reducing tobacco- related health care costs.”

McNally of the NH CCC pointed out that 20.8 percent of New Hampshire’s high school students are smokers, and an additional 1,700 kids take up smoking each year. “This lack of funding is keeping our youth smoking rate at dangerously high levels,” she said, “and it is preventing us from reducing the number of people who die every year from tobacco use.” The New Hampshire Comprehensive Cancer Collaboration, a program managed by the Foundation for Healthy Communities, was
