Navy Honors Sessions

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WALA) — Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and Ranking member of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee, received the Distinguished Public Service Award Tuesday from the Department of the Navy.  It is the Navy's highest award to those outside naval service.

“I am moved and humbled by this honor and am so deeply grateful to Secretary Mabus. We must never fail to understand how critical the Navy is in securing America and projecting American power across the world. As an eight-year member of the Subcommittee on Seapower, I think it’s important to support our naval programs, and to ensure the necessary resources for our men and women in service. The United States Navy is the greatest naval force the world has known, and we must never break faith with those who serve in its ranks. Today’s award will remind me always of the solemn obligation we in Congress have to stand resolutely behind the men and women of the United States Navy and all of our armed services,” said Sessions.
