Silver Mariner Award

August 19, 2016

silver-mariner-awardThe Chief was nominated by one of his bosses from the class of ’91, for the Silver Mariner Award for 25 years of sailing. He has been selected to receive the award at the upcoming reunion and Homecoming weekend. Unfortunately, the Chief cannot get relieved to come home and I will be unable to go without him. I am so proud of him for sticking with this crazy life, even with its challenges and pressures. He is my rock and hero.

The purpose of the Silver Mariner Award is to recognize those alumni and graduates of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and its Cadet Corps who have fulfilled the principal goal of the Academy to prepare mariners for a career at sea in the Merchant Marine or in the Armed Forces of the U.S. Recipients must be licensed and sailed as a Master, Chief Engineer or First Class Pilot. They must have sailed for at least 25 years in an unlimited license capacity with a minimum of one voyage necessary to complete a successful year. Five years of active military duty afloat time may satisfy five years of the Master’s or First Class Pilot’s Award and five years of licensed deck officer time may satisfy five years of the First Class Pilot’s Award. To receive the Military Silver Mariner Award, one must have served on active duty for 25 years in one of the U.S. Armed Services (including NOAA) and achieved the rank of O-6 (Captain/Colonel).
