May cited as ‘Sailor of the Day’ on USS Carl Vinson

BREMERTON, Wash. – Logistics Specialist Seaman Kevin D. May, a native of Huntsville, recently received special commendation aboard the USS Carl Vinson or CVN 70.

May was recognized as the Vinson’s “Sailor of the Day” in a ceremony on the ship’s bridge on Aug. 18. May was selected for this honor from among more than 3,000 sailors in the ship’s crew for the Nimitz-class nuclear aircraft carrier.

May works as an accounting clerk in the aviation intermediate maintenance department aboard the USS Vinson. He is responsible for the inventory management and issuance of equipment, repair parts, tools, consumable items and hazardous material.

May graduated from Huntsville High School in 2014 and enlisted in the Navy in 2017.

As May continues to serve aboard Vinson, May wants to thank his loved ones in Huntsville for always having his back. “I am so proud to serve my country and especially thankful for the support I receive from my friends and family back home,” May said.

USS Carl Vinson is en route to San Diego, Calif. She is named for Carl Vinson, a Congressman from Georgia, in recognition of his contributions to the U.S. Navy. The ship was launched in 1980, undertook her maiden voyage in 1983 and underwent refueling and overhaul between 2005 and 2009.

The Navy Office of Community Outreach or NAVCO connects Americans with the U.S. Navy. With most of the Navy’s personnel and equipment logically concentrated on America’s coasts, NAVCO oversees several community outreach programs designed to bring America’s Navy to cities throughout the country that do not enjoy a significant Navy presence.

The Media Outreach Department with the Navy Office of Community Outreach in Millington, Tenn. researched and produced this profile. For more information, visit outreach.navy.mil, Facebook/Navy Outreach, Twitter @NavyOutreach or Instagram @US_Navy_Outreach.
