Friday, June 18, 2004
The Ocean Sea Award will be presented to Raymond P. Ebeling, Chairman and President of American Roll-on Roll-off Carriers (ARC), and Robert P. Magee, Chairman and CEO of The American Shipping Group. The maritime industry¹s most prestigious honors will be awarded at a gala industry dinner and dance to be held at the Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers, New York City, on November 5, 2004. John Bowers, Chairman of the USS AOTOS Committee and President of the International Longshoremen¹s Association, AFL-CIO, made the announcements. "These two industry leaders from management we salute this year represent the finest in American spirit," said Mr. Bowers. "Mr. Ebeling¹s career has spanned some of the finest companies in American shipping and Bob Magee has been a career maritime man at sea, on shore and in shipbuilding." Mr. Bowers added: "Our recipients have been selected by those who know them best--international transportation leaders who understand very well the challenges and issues that confront United States shipping and American seafarers and who wish to recognize leadership in this area." Raymond Ebeling and Robert Magee led the field of nominees for the award, solicited by USS from more than 200 maritime management, labor and government officials. All proceeds from the event benefit USS community services abroad for the U.S. merchant marine and those of other free world countries. Both recipients will share the evening with a group of American seafarers who will be honored for specific acts of bravery at sea.
