Commanding Officer Capt. Aaron Peters of the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division selected Petty Officer First Class Joseph Rodriguez, Reading, as Sailor of the Quarter for the second quarter of 2019.

Petty Officer Rodriguez ‘s exceptional motivation and performance as Leading Petty Officer was evident as he meticulously planned and assisted with providing the necessary Diver Life Support System equipment in support of Valiant Shield, May 1, 2018,” said Peters. “This was an Indo-Pacific Command biennial field training exercise and his expertise in deliberate risk assessment contributed to becoming the third and only dive team to successfully accomplish the mission in demanding conditions.”

Rodriguez is a 2003 graduate of Reading High School and joined the Navy in August 2004.

Peters commended Rodriguez for meticulous planning and expertly performed service and cited him for exemplary service that also extended to Panama City’s local community.
