Construction Mechanic 1st Class Michael Price was awarded the Robert D. Stethem Award for valor. The award is a moral-based award given to those upholding the highest of the U.S. Navy’s core values and traditions. Stethem was killed in 1985 by Hezbollah terrorists who hijacked a TWA flight during his return from an assignment in Greece with Underwater Construction Team 1. One recipient is chosen each year for the award, which recognizes outstanding individual moral courage in support of the traditions of the Seabees while in the course of actual operations.
