Description

The Bob Feller Act of Valor Award Foundation is excited to announce the winners of the 2017 Bob Feller Act of Valor Award. This award recognizes six recipients – one Baseball Hall of Famer, one current MLB professional baseball player, one U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer, two Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Awards (one for an Afloat Command, one for a Shore Command) and the United States Marine Corps (USMC) Jerry Coleman Award.

The Foundation will be awarding two new Awards for 2017 to Military Children. Eligible children will be asked to research and submit an essay on one of the Hall of Famers who chose to serve their country during war time. The short essay should focus on the Foundation's Four Pillars and how the player embraced them, along with an overview of their service.

The Navy Memorial includes both a commemorative public plaza and a Naval Heritage Center. The plaza is a round ceremonial amphitheater paved in granite to form a 100-foot diameter of the world. Surrounding the deck of the plaza are fountains, pools, flagpole masts, and sculptural panels near the edge of the plaza. The Navy Memorial is located at 701 Pennsylvania Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20004.
