Jake's Special Recognition and Achievement AwardShipmates, your Yeoman has deemed it appropriate for this site to award exceptional contributors to this Site.

Since Jake's 'Yankee Station' came online, back in 1995, we have been honored by many who have done just that.

The Yeoman feels that it's Pay-Back Time for all this help, to those who honor us so well.

The Contributor's List is growing, and since Jake's USS Hancock Memorial has always been an Awarding Website, where we give out awards to other websites of note, it seems also appropriate that we honor those who contribute to this site, whose contributions enable us to stand out among the many other Military Memorial Websites on the Internet.

This Award is presented to contributors of this site,

For, without such help and commitment from contributors to this website, the USS Hancock Memorial would be, at best, mediocre. Mediocrity has never been part of the Hancock Tradition, and it shall not be a part of the Hancock Memorial's tradition either; to the Yeoman and the Website's Admin Department, mediocrity is unacceptable.

The Hannah's 'Can do, do now' attitude is the common thread that runs through all of us who served proudly in her, and this is why our Nation gives out Medals of Recognition. It is also why this Site must continue in this tradition.

Therefore, I present to you, the names of those who have thus far shown this extraordinary quality, and are so deserving of this Award.

Please join with me, in saluting all those who have been selected for the "Jake's 'Yankee Station' - USS Hancock CV/CVA-19 Memorial's 'Special Recognition and Achievement Award:

OUR CREW: The Special USS Hancock CV/CVA-19 "CREW" Recognition Citation, Above all else, the Crew of all Era's is due Special Recognition.

However, this Award comes from this Website to all of those who served proudly and honorably on the U.S.S. Hancock. So whether you felt or feel today, that you should be given special recognition, you are getting it anyway, so "belay" that Sailor!
