Shipmates, it gives me great pleasure to announce the selection of Aviation Electronics Technician 1st Class (AW) Maria English as the 2020 Navy Reserve Force Shore Sailor of the Year. Petty Officer English is currently assigned to Fleet Readiness Center Detachment McGuire (CNAFR).
 
Other finalists included:
Hospital Corpsman 1st Class (FMF/EXW/PJ) Joshua C. Mackey, Marine Aircraft Aircraft Group 41 (MARFORRES)
Navy Counselor 1st Class (AW) Sarah A. Dore, Navy Operational Support Center (NOSC) Washington, DC (CNRFC)
 
Petty Officer English's nomination package will be forwarded for consideration at the FY 2020 Navy Shore Sailor of the Year board in Washington, DC, next month, where she will compete against other very capable Sailors, including Active Component selects.
 
Competition at this level was extremely close.  All finalists represented their commands with distinction, and each should be extremely proud of their professional and personal achievements. Well done and congratulations to all.

I would also like to recognize the families and the respective unit leadership who supported each of the finalists.  Their prior and current support is critical to the success of each of our Sailors.  Thank you.
