USS STENNIS AND USS EISENHOWER LEADERSHIP AWARD WINNERS VISIT D.C.
On October 19 & 20, the USS STENNIS and USS EISENHOWER leadership award winners toured Washington, D.C., where they met with Members of Congress, congressional staff and other civilian leaders. The trip is a part of the Stennis Center's continuing effort to strengthen understanding and relationships between civilian leaders and the military. As the leadership award winners are honored and learn about how policy is made in Washington, the civilian leaders have an opportunity to learn about the life, values, culture and institutions of the military through visits with the leadership award winners and their family members. Including family members in discussions with leaders in Washington helps further understanding of contributions made by the family members of those who serve in the American military.
