The Navy League of the United States Milwaukee Council presented 3 awards on Friday 8-19-16 at the Annual Sea Services Picnic. The event was held at the Milwaukee Coast Guard station at the lakefront.
Sailor of the year, for the Navy, was MA1 Carmen Greene. Marine of the Year was Cpl. Joshua Boyenga. Sailor of the Year for the Coast Guard was SK3 Jordan Drew who was on much deserved leave during the time of the ceremony.
The awards are presented in honor of exemplary service and accomplishments during the past year.
The Navy League is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational and advocacy organization that supports America’s sea services — the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and U.S.-flag Merchant Marine. The Navy League is a military service organization, rather than a veterans’ organization, although it cherishes and supports our veterans and wounded warriors. The Navy League is a civilian partner of the sea services, supporting their mission, their personnel and their families.
