Gresham man earns Naval award
A Gresham man was honored for his help in coordinating and managing a Naval training package that prepared more than 30 sailors to operate anti-submarine warfare systems.
Jason Morris earned the Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems Excellence Award from the U.S. Navy. As part of the training team, Morris approved online collaboration tools to receive student feedback, assist instructors and provide the 33 students information on test operations.
Morris is a 2012 University of Maryland graduate and served in the Navy for 25 years, retiring as a senior chief petty officer. He currently works as a training team lead.
"I work with a great team of professionals who make it their No. 1 priority to create the best training possible for our sailors in the fleet," Morris said.
He operates a training package program that provides advanced testing and evaluation, in-service engineering, maintenance and industrial base support, fleet material readiness, and obsolescence management for undersea warfare.
"I've served in the Navy all of my adult life," Morris said. "It's my top priority to deliver the best training possible to our sailors that's innovative and continues to challenge them so they are ready to fight."
