By Burrell Parmer Navy Recruiting District San Antonio Public Affairs

Mission accomplishment and Sailors' welfare were the themes stressed by Rear Adm. Annie B. Andrews, commander, Navy Recruiting Command, during a visit to Navy Recruiting District San Antonio Feb. 25 and 26.

Andrews was accompanied by Master Chief Jimmie A. Holt, Jr., NRC's national chief recruiter, and John Curry, NRC's deputy for logistics.

After visiting recruiters and staff of NRD Dallas, Andrews met with recruiters of Navy Recruiting Stations Waco, Temple and North Austin Feb. 25.

The admiral received a briefing at NRD headquarters Feb. 26 from Cmdr. Mike Briggs, executive officer, extended recognition to annual award winners, toured offices and greeted Sailors and support personnel.

Additionally, the NRC team visited Naval Recruiting Stations Hollywood Park and Ingram.

Throughout her visit Andrews thanked the Sailors and support staff for their continuing efforts to recruit the best and brightest men and women that South Texas has to offer. She also wanted to know what her headquarters can do to assist and improve the process.

During her visit to NRS Broadway, Andrews had the opportunity to address four future Sailors.

"While at boot camp you are going to meet people from all different walks of life, all with varied backgrounds, but they all joined to be part of something special and greater," Andrews said. "It doesn't matter which program you go into; you have to remember you are always a U.S. Sailor first."
