We are all very thankful for every person serving, or that has served, in the United States Armed Forces. Here's a great story of a Windsor sailor's success.

The U.S. Navy recently recognized Master-at-Arms 1st Class Mikel Meister as being the 'Senior Sailor of the Year' for 2020 at Naval Support Activity Souda Bay in Greece.

Mikel has been at his current base for two years while being in the Navy for a total of ten years.

According to a press release:

Meister is part of the Security Department where he is the Bravo section’s watch commander, leading the shift’s security operations from law enforcement to force protection.

NSA Souda Bay is an operational ashore base that enables U.S., allied, and partner-nation forces to be where they are needed when they are needed to ensure security and stability in Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia.

When asked about his award, Meister's said:

“I think it is a good representation of my accomplishments here,” said Meister. “But also my section that works with me have set me up to be a good role model for them.”

Congratulations, sailor.
