Battle “E” Award Winners Announced

Everybody likes winning. And now over 30 ships across the U.S. Navy fleet have cause to celebrate.

The Battle “E” award (formerly named for Battle Efficiency) is the nickname for the prestigious Battle Effectiveness award. The award is given annually to U.S. Navy ships and crews that exhibit the maximum condition of departmental readiness in their group and capability to perform their wartime tasks.

For the competitive year 2011, 34 of 168 ships across the fleet were awarded the Battle “E.”

“The Battle ‘E’ demonstrates exceptional performance and each surface ship award winner has shown success in meeting mission area standards,” said Vice Adm. Richard Hunt, Commander, Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet. “Our primary mission is war fighting and they have set the standard of readiness fleet wide.”
