Past honorees have included Admirals, Captains, CEOs and leading maritime executives from around the globe. The honoree is presented with the Captain Emery Rice Medal. Named for an 1895 Academy graduate and WWI hero, Captain Rice was recognized twice by Theodore Roosevelt for his maritime skill and bravery as a shining example of American courage and fighting spirit.
