WASHINGTON, D.C. (Feb. 19, 2010) — Today, Congressman Ike Skelton (D-Mo.) commended the crew of the aircraft carrier USS Harry S Truman (CVN-75) for earning the East Coast Battle Efficiency Award for 2009. The Battle “E” Award recognizes sustained superior performance in an operational environment.

Skelton wrote in a letter to Captain Joe Clarkson, the commanding officer of the USS Truman:

“I understand that your ship, the USS Harry S Truman (CVN-75), recently earned the East Coast Battle Efficiency Award for 2009. Congratulations to you, to Command Master Chief Walker, and to the officers and crew of the TRUMAN for the outstanding work that led to this award.

“The Battle “E” is significant because it is the only competition that evaluates the ship’s performance in all mission areas over a complete year. I am very pleased that your fine crew has earned the Battle “E” for the second year in a row and for the fifth time in the ship’s history. This track record is impressive and reflects well on the leadership and professionalism of all aboard the TRUMAN.

“It makes me especially proud that you and your crew are taking such good care of the ship named in honor of Missouri’s favorite son, President Harry S Truman. Thank you and all TRUMAN sailors for your dedication and commitment to serving our country. I wish you all the best as you prepare for the ship’s upcoming deployment.”
