Lone Sailor Awards!
Last night we also joined 600 at the National Building Museum for the Navy Memorial’s Lone Sailor Awards Dinner. The award is given annually to Sea Service veterans who have excelled in their civilian careers. We snapped Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson with her husband James Hewson.
The black tie gala included a scrumptious dinner of filet mignon and pesto-crusted fish and a silent auction with a week’s vacation in the Outer Banks and dinner from Jose Andres. Here, former Navy Secretary William Middendorf with Miss America 1985 Sharlene Wells Hawkes and (standing) Admiral Charles Michel and the Spectrum Group's USN (Ret.) Captain Dale Lumme.
Navy veteran and former McDonald’s CEO Jim Skinner was honored. He’s surrounded by Mary Overstreet, Admiral Michelle Howard, and RADM (Ret.) Sean Crean.
