"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.
