Captain Henry (Jerry) Hendrix Retires

Patrol Squadron Ten (VP-10) and Combat Aircrew Two (CAC-2) alumnus, Captain Henry (Jerry) Hendrix, retires from US Naval Service.

During his speech, Captain Hendrix made several reminiscent and proud comments regarding his time in VP-10 on CAC-2, " We stayed in 2-mile scale, kept out of the water, and were the best Bear Trap Crew in Patrol Wing Five history."  This statement caused the audience to erupt in applause.

Scott Swift, director of the Navy staff. The award was presented during Hendrix's retirement ceremony at the National Museum of the U.S. Navy at the Washington Navy Yard. Hendrix assumed leadership in the wake of a 2011 inspector general investigation that found the Navy's historical and heritage holdings "at risk." Hendrix led the stabilization and systematic improvement of the command's infrastructure and processes. (U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Tim Comerford/Released)
