Capt. JD Crinklaw, commander, Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility, visited PSNS & IMF Detachment Everett Oct.16 to meet with leadership and present awards to the Sailors and civilians for their efforts supporting the Navy’s fleet.
Crinklaw met with Capt. Ash Wright, deputy commander, Northwest Regional Maintenance Center, and Cmdr. Jermaine Bailey, officer in charge, PSNS & IMF Detachment Everett, Peter Schupp, executive director, Northwest Regional Maintenance Center, and Command Senior Chief Joel Hagstrom, senior enlisted advisor, Detachment Everett, to discuss day-to-day operations and plan for the future.
Crinklaw visited the electronics, gun and maintenance shops to learn about how workers go about their mission, and ask how his office can help remove obstacles.
During his visit, Crinklaw received a command brief and toured the detachment's facilities. Crinklaw's tour included stops at detachment shops and opportunities to speak with civilian employees and Sailors in their work areas.
In addition, five people received awards, during the visit, including a civilian employee and Sailor of the Quarter winners.
Boatswain's Mate 2nd Class Robert Sahagun and Hull Maintenance Technician 1st Class John Henry were named the fourth quarter Junior Sailor and Sailor of the Quarter. Michael Viduya was recognized with an award for his ten years of federal service. Chief Machinist Mate Francis McKenna, Machinist Mast 1st Class Bryson Washington and Machinist Mate Bianca Reiter were recognized for completing required courses of study.
“What this team has accomplished during the last few months is incredible,” Crinklaw said. “We understand the challenges you had to work together to overcome and ensure our fleet’s readiness. I am continually impressed by the work you do."
