Anglim gets Navy’s civilian service award
GLADSTONE — Van M. Anglim, son of Marilyn Anglim of 1103 Wisconsin Avenue in Gladstone and a graduate of Gladstone high school, was awarded the Navy’s Meritorious Civilian Service Award to recognize the meritorious service as the chief developmental tester for AEGIS Integrated Combat System for the past 10 years. The award is the third highest Navy civilian employee award.
As a result of technological advances in warfare, Anglim championed innovative test strategies to maximize and leverage resources to deliver capabilities critical to the Navy’s future. Anglim conquered every technical and programmatic challenge encountered in support of the overall development and improvement of the Navy’s 85 cruisers and destroyers (over 30 percent of the Navy’s fleet). Anglim personally made a tremendous impact on our Navy’s capabilities, and the lives of the sailors and Marines the AEGIS Integrated Combat System protects.
