San Antonio Receives Second "Battle E"

By Mass Communication Specialist 3rd Class Lacordrick Wilson
NORFOLK, Va. (NNS) -- The crew of the amphibious transport dock ship USS San Antonio (LPD 17) received the Battle Efficiency, or Battle "E" award, March 7.

The Battle "E" award is a tribute to the ship's overall readiness and was determined by a yearlong evaluation of San Antonio's accomplishments during training exercises and various command inspections.

The San Antonio was nominated by Amphibious Squadron (PHIBRON) Four and has received the Battle "E" two years in a row while under the leadership of commanding officer Cmdr. Neil Koprowski.
