NAVSUP FLC Yokosuka Commanding Officer Capt. Jeffery Davis stopped by Site Atsugi, June 6, to personally thank and congratulate the team.
"It is a tremendous privilege to celebrate the success of the combined ASD and [FLC Yokosuka] Site Atsugi team. Achieving seven consecutive Blue 'E' awards is an incredible feat, but it is just as impressive to know that this team has achieved the highest score on record for any shore activity," said Davis.
