Navy League honors SPAWAR lieutenant Rick Naystatt

Lt. Brandon Carll, currently assigned as a SPAWAR contracting officer, is the winner of the Supply Corp’s Adm. Ben Moreell award for logistics competence. Carll was recognized for his accomplishments aboard the Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine USS City of Corpus Christi (SSN 705).

SAN DIEGO – With an average of 500 yearly nominations, the Navy League of the United States announced Oct. 27 that Lt. Brandon M. Carll, from Girard, Pa., is the 2011 Admiral Ben Moreell Award recipient for logistics competence.

Nominated by the USS City of Corpus Christi, Carll was recognized for his exemplary performance as the Navy supply officer aboard.

Presented since 1984, the award recognizes one officer and one enlisted service member from the Navy or Marine Corps for outstanding personal contribution that has advanced logistics readiness and competence for the Navy. The Navy Leagues’ awards panel is chaired by J. William Middendorf II, former Secretary of the Navy.

“Receiving the Admiral Ben Moreell Award is an incredible tribute and is something that means a great deal to me,” said Carll. “Moreell was a visionary and his leadership style made lasting impacts on every organization that he was involved with. To be named in the same sentence as Moreell is truly an honor.”

Carll led 20 sailors without a chief petty officer in the supply department for 18 months aboard City of Corpus Christi, which was the recipient of the 2009 and 2010 Supply Blue “E” winner and named “best on the waterfront” by Submarine Squadron 15 for supply operations, a direct result of Carll’s steadfast leadership.

Additionally, Carll led two Western Pacific tours that included five major port calls and acted as the single liaison between local agents and the ship, ensuring that essential food and supplies were ordered and delivered between mission periods.

“I hope that sailors in the supply department aboard the City of Corpus Christi are aware that their mental agility and hard work contributed to this award and are recognized by the Navy League,” said Carll. “They should be proud of this accomplishment.”

The Admiral Ben Moreell Award is named for the admiral who is remembered for his exceptional meritorious service in World War II whereby, through extraordinary foresight, judgment, initiative and energy, he directed the expansion of the Naval Shore Establishment in the United States and the building of advanced bases overseas.

Carll currently works at Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command as a contracts intern, a two-year program designed to provide classroom and on-the-job training within the contracting function of the Department of Defense acquisition process. Upon completing the two year program, Carll will receive a level two Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act contracting certification.
