A seafaring ship has many important aspects; the hull, the sails, the rudder, bow or stern, however, one part of the ship is responsible for keeping the ship in one place or for allowing it to continue moving. The anchor must be strong enough to keep the largest ship from going anywhere, but at the same time, be versatile enough to let go and allow movement to take place. The SMES “Golden Anchor” award is presented to one certified and classified staff member each week that exemplifies the strength and versatility required to be a valuable part of the USS SMES.
