Pearl Harbor, Hawaii (Jan. 26, 2004) - The crew assigned to the Los Angeles-class attack submarine USS Louisville (SSN 724) poses for a photo after receiving the Battle "E" award.  The Battle "E" award recognizes sustained superior performance in all areas of combat readiness.  As part of the competition, ships compete for command excellence in four combat areas: maritime warfare, engineering/survivability, command and control, and logistics management.  To receive the nod for battle efficiency, a ship must excel in all four areas.  U.S. Navy photo by Journalist 3rd Class Corwin M. Colbert.  (RELEASED)
