Navy Air and Missile Defense Command (NAMDC) recognized one of its top performers during a recent ceremony here. Eddie J. Williams Jr., an administrative officer with the command, was recognized for outstanding performance and was honored as NAMDC Employee of the Quarter.
"Eddie is both a team player and a strong leader," said Rear Admiral M. Stewart O'Bryan, NAMDC commander. "He is respected by his peers and valued by the leadership."
Williams joined the Navy in 1989. He served aboard USS DAVID R. RAY (DD 971) and USS COWPENS (CG 63), both in the Pacific theater.
