Surprise call results in award, advancement

Petty Officer First Class Roderick Ansley had no clue what he was in for when the commanding officer of U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City Capt. Scott Craig requested his participation in a phone conference regarding a project he worked on with the command and Coast Guard Headquarters. He realized something was different about this meeting when they dialed in and he noticed the large smiles on the skipper, executive officer, engineering officer and command master chief. On the other end of the line, Vice Commandant Adm. Charles Michel congratulated him on his selection as the 2017 Douglas A. Munro Inspirational Leadership Award winner.
