Mentioned in Dispatches

My boss, Dear Leader David, used a new-to-me term yesterday: "Mentioned in Dispatches". It's a traditional British military kudos for "... one whose name appears in an official report written by a superior officer and sent to the high command, in which his or her gallant or meritorious action in the face of the enemy is described." In this case, a kind after-action report gave a ^z nod for showing up to help at a meeting. And hey, as the proverb says, "If you were in the room when it happened, you get credit for it!"
