Master Sgt. Charles Cremeans, 786th Security Forces Squadron deployable medic, was recently named the Air Force nominee for the Lewis L. Seaman Enlisted Award for outstanding operational support. The award is sponsored by the Association of Military Surgeons of the U.S.
“We are clearly very proud of Master Sgt. Cremeans,” Col. Rich Johnston, KMC and 86th Airlift Wing commander, wrote. “He has represented U.S. Air Forces in Europe and the Air Force very well.”
The Seaman Award is made possible through funds first provided to AMSUS in 1900 by the late Major Lewis Livingston Seaman, a surgeon of the First U.S. Volunteers, Spanish Amer-ican War. After many years of not being awarded, the Lewis L. Seaman Enlisted Award for Outstanding Operational Support was established in 1998 to recognize an enlisted medical healthcare professional who has made a significant impact in the areas of patient care, clinical support or healthcare management, and to their service’s medical mission.
The awards are presented to Active Duty, Reserve or Guard enlisted professionals of the Army, Navy, Air Force or Coast Guard, who have exhibited outstanding accomplishments in advancing the healthcare mission of their service through demonstrated compassionate and quality patient care and service, clinical support or healthcare management.
The Awards are presented at the Association’s Annual Meeting during the Annual Dinner. The annual meeting is currently scheduled to be held Nov. 5 to 10 in San Antonio, Texas. A plaque and a monetary award will be presented to the winner. (Courtesy of the 86th Airlift Wing)
