Minnow has, since his coming on staff as first an SO and then the Deputy, provided excellent service to the Office of the Chief of Staff and, by extension, the Fleet’s membership as a whole. In his time serving on staff, Minnow has provided invaluable input on policy decisions and enforcement, doing what each Deputy should do and serving as counselor to his charged Department Head. On a more quantifiable level, Kris has processed countless activity ribbons as the point man in the department for that task. The processing of these awards has been critical to assuring that members are rewarded, promoted, and otherwise recognized in a timely manner. Minnow has brought a unique perspective to the Chief of Staff’s office, and his contributions stand him in good stead along with those of past staffers. Congratulations!
