Sailors and Marines honored

Silverdale Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Military Affairs Committee, recognized two Sailors and two Marines of the Quarter at its November general membership meeting.

The Sailor of the Quarter awards were given to MT1 Christopher Switzer and MA1 Virginia Horton. Horton is also the Strategic Weapons Facility's sailor of the year.

The Marines of the Quarter are Sgt. Brandon M. Richman and LCpl Sarah Gorman.

The Military Affairs Committee acts as a liaison between local businesses and the military. They are also responsible for the annual Military Appreciation Day at the Kitsap Fairgrounds.

Sailors and Marines of the Quarter are not chosen directly by the committee, but rather honored by them at these assemblies.

In previous years, honorees have received gift certificates to local restaurants and a plaque of recognition. Every year a luncheon is sponsored for these military men and women.
