SUBJ/2022 VICE ADMIRAL JAMES BOND STOCKDALE LEADERSHIP AWARD WINNERS// 
 
RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces the 2022 Recipients of the Vice 
Admiral James Bond Stockdale Leadership Award.  Commander Adam J. 
Thomas, former Commanding Officer, USS ALASKA (SSBN 732) (GOLD) 
(U.S. Fleet Forces Command) and Commander John W. Keefe, Commanding 
Officer, Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit FIVE (EODMU 5) 
(U.S. Pacific Fleet) were selected for their inspirational leadership. 
 
2.  This Fleet award was established in honor of VADM James Bond 
Stockdale, whose distinguished naval career symbolized the highest 
standards of excellence in both personal and professional leadership. 
The award is presented annually to two commissioned officers on 
active duty in the grade of commander or below who are serving in 
command of a single ship, submarine, aviation squadron, Sea, Air, 
Land (SEAL) team, naval special warfare squadron, SEAL delivery 
vehicle team, special boat team, explosive ordnance disposal mobile 
unit, mobile diving and salvage unit or Navy special clearance team 
during the nomination cycle.  Candidates are nominated by peers who 
themselves must be eligible for the award. 
 
3.  The 2022 winners were chosen from among 10 outstanding finalists 
in a review process that included screening at the Fleet Commander 
level and final selection by a board of senior officers.

        (1) CDR Robert J. McDowell, Commanding Officer,
