Daw receives special ribbon

Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Eric D. Daw, whose wife, Sonya,
is the daughter of Alfonso and Guadalupe Villela of Pecos,
recently received the Battle Efficiency Ribbon (Battle "E")
while on a six-month deployment to the Arabian Gulf aboard
the aircraft carrier USS George Washington.

The ribbon recognizes Daw's contribution in the selection of
his ship as the recipient of the U.S. Atlantic Fleet Battle
Excellence Award. The Battle "E" award is given annually by
Commander U.S. Atlantic Fleet to each class of naval ship
that sustains or improves its combat readiness.

Daw's ship earned the award for exhibiting excellence in all
areas of shipbaord operation, including navigation,
strategic and tactical mission, engineering, medical
readiness, supply and communications.

Aircraft carriers, like USS George Washington, are forward
deployed around the world to maintain a U.S. presence and
provide rapid response in times of crisis. They serve as a
highly visible deterrent to would-be aggressors and, if
deterrence fails, offer the most versatile and powerful
weapons available.

The 1987 graduate of Keokuk Senior High School of Keokuk,
Iowa, joined the Navy in June 1987.
