I am delighted that Dr. Pete Lyons has been awarded the ANS Eisenhower Medal for his exceptional work in the nuclear field. It has been an honor and a personal pleasure to have worked with Pete over the years, and I can attest to the fact that he was in critical policy roles at key times when it truly mattered. His legacy as an advocate of nuclear power will long be remembered. I could not be prouder of the fact that Pete Lyons will forever be associated with Dwight Eisenhower's name through this prestigious award.
