NSRC Launch Third Online Installment of Campaign

Tuesday, May 14, 2002
The National Ship Repair Coalition (NSRC) launched its third multi-media presentation to support the “What Have You Done for the Fleet Today?” campaign. The latest installment of this campaign can be viewed online at http://www.nationalshiprepair.com by clicking on the “What Have You Done for the Fleet Today?” banner. This month’s presentation features the work of Annette Sison and Louise Cutler, both of whom work at U.S. Marine Repair Shipyards. Sison originally joined Southwest Marine as a laborer and is proud to be an integral part of the company, which is an industry leader in ship repair, maintenance, and conversion. Cutler joined the Navy support team at Norfolk Shipbuilding and Drydock Corporation (NORSHIPCO) in September 1977, adding to the company’s long history of distinguished service to the international maritime community. Sison and Cutler both know that their work has become even more important to the Fleet after September 11, 2001.

Each month, the “What Have You Done for the Fleet Today?” campaign tells the story of some of the most dedicated industry employees. By highlighting the work of the private sector shipyards through this multi-media campaign, NSRC is focusing attention on the key role this industry plays in defending the United States. “There are literally thousands of individuals that go to work in shipyards across the country each day, and they are proud of their work supporting the Fleet,” said NSRC President Christopher Long. “This campaign showcases the pride and commitment of these hardworking individuals to the men and women of the United States Navy, policymakers, and our friends and neighbors.”
