Dinner chairs Denise R. Krepp and Vice Admiral Al Konetzni, USN (Ret.), and founding dinner chairman Philip J. Webster, are thrilled to announce that we will honor iconic American maritime institutions that epitomize the maritime history of the United States of America and for generations have been in the forefront of supporting the nation’s maritime commerce, defense and security. The Society will honor the United States Merchant Marine with its NMHS Distinguished Service Award on the 245th anniversary of its founding during the American Revolution, for its indispensable and often unheralded contributions to our nation’s security and prosperity since 1775. David Yoho, who served in the Merchant Marine in the Pacific in World War II, will accept the award. The United States Naval Academy will be honored with the NMHS Distinguished Service Award on the 175th anniversary of its founding in 1845, for educating tens of thousands of Navy and Marine Corps officers whose leadership has helped defend the nation and the world for generations. Superintendent of the Academy VADM Sean Buck, USN, and the Commander of the Brigade of Midshipmen will accept the award.
