I would like to see the acronym AO (American Optical) defined in the nomination and present on the plaque. I think the full name is more important than the physical address mentioned in the citation.

If we delete the "now" in the phrase "now routinely" that gives us another word so that we can spell out "American Optical" while remaining under the word limit. The present tense implies the "now," so that presumably could be deleted without changing the meaning.

This is a worthy nomination. It is also well documented. I tend to agree with the various editorial comments, and do not feel the need to repeat them. I will leave it up to the citation expert to fine tune the wording, but I tend to support the Milestone as meritorious.
