NENA Announces 2021 Medal

2021 Nena Medal Obverse

NENA’s 2021 Convention Medal was designed by Robert R. Maisch.

Pictured (top)is the 4- masted schooner Luther Little under full sail with the bow wash showing that these ships were the speedsters of the era. The Luther little was built in the Crowninshield Shipyard, Somerset, Massachusetts in the early 1900s. Pictured (lower vessel) is the 4-stacker destroyer, U.S.S. Crowninshield (DD-134) buith at Bath Iron Works, Bath, Maine in the same time frame as the Luther Little. The ship was named in honor of Benjamin Williams Crowninshield, former Secterary of the Navey 1814-1818. With a top speed of over 35 knots the destroyers earned the title “Greyhounds of the Sea”.
