NORFOLK, Va. – The crew of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) received the 2020 Battenberg Cup Award in a ceremony aboard the ship, June 1, 2021.
The Battenberg Cup is awarded annually to the ship or submarine selected by the fleet commander as the best all-around in the Atlantic Fleet, based on accumulation of crew achievements.
Adm. Christopher Grady, the commander of U.S. Fleet Forces Command, presented the award to Truman’s Sailor of the Year, Retail Services Specialist 1st Class Kimberly Fleming, on behalf of the crew.
"The Battenberg Cup is a testament to what you can achieve with Toughness, Tenacity, and of course, Teamwork. Your sustained superior performance before, during, and after deployment in 2020 has been exceptional," said Grady. "Each of you should be as proud of yourselves and of the entire Harry S. Truman team, as I am of you and all of your shipmates. So congratulations on your outstanding, well-earned award, and never, ever stop "giving 'em hell.”
