IMAGE: KING GEORGE, Va. – Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) Deputy for Small Business Kris Parker speaks with II Corps Consultants, Inc., executive Earnest King at an NSWCDD event for small businesses. A Small Business Administration final rule to implement the 2018 Small Business Runway Extension Act effective on Jan. 6, 2020 is good news for Dahlgren, according to Parker. The law increased the period of measuring small businesses’ annual revenue from three to five years in the contract evaluation process. “This change to five years is a logical move, as it helps account for the cyclical nature of contract awards,” he said. “It should really help increase our potential small business base.”  (U.S. Navy photo/Released)

IMAGE: DAHLGREN, Va. (Nov. 15, 2019) - Timothy Orr, an associate professor of military history at Old Dominion University, and co-author of “Never Call Me A Hero:  A Legendary American Dive-Bomber Pilot Remembers the Battle of Midway,” stresses the importance of never forgetting the Battle of Midway warfighters. He shares their stories as a part of the Naval Heritage Command Lecture Series sponsored by the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division Integrated Combat Systems Department Nov. 15 at the base theater. “No matter what they did, whether they came back or died out on the ocean, were wounded, or blew up in their plane – all of that is a story worth telling,” he said. “It explains how the U.S. eventually triumphed over the empire of Japan in the Pacific War. It really shapes the world as we know it today.”
