The VADM Samuel L. Gravely Jr. Leadership & Service Award, conferred annually, recognizes leaders in Southern California who exemplify the Vice Admiral’s trailblazing and courageous service.

The Gravely Award Celebration is part of “IOWA Remembers,” the annual series of tributes and ceremonies presented by Battleship IOWA. The series advances the mission to “Celebrate the American Spirit” by marking national, military and naval dates of importance.

Admiral Samuel L. Gravely (1922 – 2004) had a naval career that lasted 38 years, during which he broke boundaries. He became the first African-American to command a warship (USS Theodore E. Chandler (DD 717)) and then a major warship (USS Jouett (DLG 29)). Eventually, his heroism and leadership capabilities resulted in his achieving flag rank and becoming the first African-American vice admiral to command a numbered fleet (U.S. 3rd). Throughout his career, Gravely received the Legion of Merit, a Bronze Star and the Meritorious Service and Navy Commendation Medals. The destroyer USS Gravely (DDG 107), commissioned in 2010, was named in his honor. He passed away in 2004 at the age of 82 and was interred at Washington D.C’s Arlington National Cemetery with military honors.
