USS Abraham Lincoln Sailors Recognized
Three Sailors aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) were awarded Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals (NAM) during a ceremony April 23.
Lincoln’s Commanding Officer, Capt. Ron Ravelo, presented NAMs to Culinary Specialist 1st Class James E. Parrott, Culinary Specialist 3rd Class Chad P. Smith, and Seaman Apprentice Benjamin T. Priebe in recognition of their continued success and hard work during Lincoln’s current phase of its refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH).
The NAM was created in 1961 as a way to recognize junior officers and enlisted personnel for outstanding work in their field or for going above and beyond the call of duty.
Sailors were recognized for their hard work and dedication.
USS Abraham Lincoln is currently undergoing RCOH at Newport News Shipbuilding, a division of Huntington-Ingalls Industries in Newport News.
USS Abraham Lincoln is the fifth ship of the Nimitz class to undergo RCOH, a major life-cycle milestone.
