NAVAL SUPPORT FACILITY REDZIKOWO, Poland (NNS) -- Logistics Specialist 1st Class Jeremy M. Flennasprague was selected as the Sailor of the Year while serving on board Naval Support Facility (NSF) Redzikowo, located in Redzikowo, Poland.
"The title 'Sailor of the Year' at any command is a great honor for a Sailor, and is something that is earned, not won," said Command Senior Chief Jason Stevenor. "Petty Officer Flennasprague's hard work, determination and commitment to helping Sailors, reinforced that he earned that title, and his continual efforts show that he has a great naval career ahead of him."
As a logistics specialist, Flennasprague's job includes custom clearing for all materials and managing the housing and personnel property shipping program. Additionally, he is the command's sexual assault prevention and response point of contact.
"Earning the Sailor of the Year award means that I have reached another step in my career," said Flennasprague. "It reminds me to make sure I am helping fellow Sailors reach their goals as well."
Flennasprague joined the Navy to better his life and see the world. He has served in the Navy for eight years, and has ambitions to continue serving as a logistics specialist and one day be commissioned as a supply officer.
He thanked his wife who stays strong while remaining at home in Connecticut. They are expecting their first child in May.
"Being stationed in Poland has been an exciting experience where I was able to make friendships that will last a lifetime," said Flennasprague.
Flennasprague will continue to serve at NSF Redzikowo until March of 2018. Following his current assignment, he will report to Medical Supply Logistics Company 1st Supply Battalion in Camp Pendleton, California.
