FORT GEORGE G. MEADE, Md. (NNS) -- The Chief of Naval Operations will present the Vice Adm. James B. Stockdale Leadership Award during a ceremony at the Pentagon Hall of Heroes Dec. 4 at 10 a.m.

The award is presented annually to two commissioned officers on active duty in the grade of commander or below who are serving in command of a single unit and who serve as examples of excellence in leadership and conspicuous contribution to the improvement of leadership in the Navy.

A Naval Academy graduate and pilot, Stockdale ejected from his A-4E Skyhawk over North Vietnam in September 1965 and was held prisoner and frequently tortured until February 1973. He received the Medal of Honor in 1976 and served as president of the Naval War College from October 1977 until August 1979.
