Significance of the Army-Navy "E" Award The United States War and Navy Department today join in the formal presentation to the men and women of William M. Fencil Company, Fuze Loading Division, of the coveted joint Army- Navy Production Award for high achievement in the production of essential war material. An interesting story lies behind the "E" flag and the lapel emblems symbolic of the award. In 1906, the Navy instituted within the fleet an Award for Execellence which has been known ever since as the Navy "E". It was first awarded to the ship and to the men who had ex¬ celled in gunnery. Later it was extended to include oustand- ing performance in engineering and communcations. An honor not easily won, it became and has remained a matter of deep pride to those who receive it. Following Pearl Harbor there arose a demand for war produc¬ tion such as the world has never known ... a realization that American fighting forces and the men and women of Ameri¬ can industry are partners in the struggle for world freedom . . . and a firm determination on the part of every American to work and fight together until victory is complete. From that high resolve was born the Army-Navy "E" Produc¬ tion Award, which is given today as the joint recognition by our fighting forces of exceptional performance on the produc¬ tion front. The Army-Navy "E" lapel emblem for outstanding achievement in production is the highest award given to civilians engaged in war production. It is an award in recognition of the indomitable American spirit which can be satisfied only by achieving today what yesterday seemed im¬ possible. It is an award of merit to signify both individual and collective effort and such can be worn with great pride. It is a nation's tribute to patriotism and unselfish effort in the great work of backing up our fighting men.
