Call currently serves in the Public Works Department (PWD) Diego Garcia Seabee Self-help unit.
“I could not have accomplished this without the great mentorship and dedicated people of NAVFAC FE, PWD DG, and my family back home for supporting me. I am truly blessed and honored,” said Call.
Call joined the Navy in June 2004 as a Seaman Recruit at the Military Entrance Process Station (MEPS) in Louisville, Kentucky. His deployments have taken him to Hawaii, Afghanistan, Spain and Diego Garcia. His personal decorations include the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Good Conduct Service Medal(3rd award), and various unit and campaign awards.
Capt. Bartoe also named BU1 Jerma Cloude from PWD Chinhae as Sailor of the Year and UT3 Justin Martin from PWD Okinawa as Blue Jacket Sailor of the Year.
“The hard work and dedication these deckplate leaders have displayed throughout the year is impressive and they truly represent the very best of the US Navy in the Far East area of operations,” he said.
