Pairing the bookends; or, ending the Navy career on a high note…

Just as I received my DD214 today that I will use in gaining employment in the coming weeks, I got some brilliant news courtesy of the Chief of Information’s office.

The 60-page program I designed for USS Anchorage’s (LPD 23) commissioning ceremony won first place in the annual Navy Media Awards competition in the Graphics – Publication (Open) category.

Here is a preview of it…download it for a higher resolution.

What makes this special is that I won an NMA in 2004 (then called the CHINFO Merit Awards) and because of that win, I was finally able to get my foot into the door in the Navy media community after two years of being told I couldn’t be in it. Alas, this year’s win book ends what has been a great communications experience that hopefully will continue wherever I end up.
