Rockford Man Named 'Sailor of the Year'

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A Rockford man has been named 'Sailor of the Year' by Military Times.

Navy Chief Jeremy Crandall says he was inspired first by his master chief back in 2001 when their ship was detained by China for 12 days.

Crandall has been serving on USS Abraham Lincoln since May 2012. He's also the ship's drug and alcohol prevention advocate.
