Congratulations to CMC Troy Rudisill on his selection as the 2022 Del Black Leadership Award recipient on August 12th.

Rudisill embodies the award traits: inspirational leadership, commitment to Sailors, and operational excellence. “CMC Rudisill is a truly remarkable and inspiring leader who bridges the gap between not only our enlisted and officer communities, but our Active and Reserve forces, bring them together in a way each of us should strive to model after. He represents everything MCPON Del Black stood for and I could think of no better person to earn the honor this year,” said MCPON Russell L. Smith.
