RMKS/1. It is with great pleasure that I announce the selection of Joint 
Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story as the FY13 winner of the USS 
BAINBRIDGE (CGN 25) award for overall excellence in community service. In 
accordance with reference (a), this award recognizes a navy command that 
engaged in exemplary voluntary community service activities working with 
local communities. Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story Sailors 
have greatly impacted the lives of more tha 135,000 members of their 
community through their unique approach to meeting needs, commited 
partnerships with local agencies, and dedication of more than 20,000 
volunteer hours to programs such as America goes back to school, Sailors feed 
the hungry and homeless, and Virginia Beach public schools beach bag program. 

2. The selection was highly competitive with the winner chosen from a field 
of 12 outstanding nominees. Each nominee is a winner within its own region. 
The top four nominees were extremely close, and I extend a well-deserved 
"bravo zulu" to Naval Air Station Pensacola, USS GEORGE WASHINGTON (CVN 73),
and Naval Air Station Patuxent River for receiving honorable mention.

3. The following commands were nominated by their community service regional

USS NIMITZ (CVN 68).

4. Congratulations to all and the communities that benefitted from the 
efforts of our dedicated and caring Sailors and civilians. Your participation 
and continued support of our Navy's communities are sincerely appreciated and 
make a difference.
BRAVO ZULU to Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story for their 
superlative performance!
