WASHINGTON, D.C. (WALB) - Information from the U. S. Navy

Chief Petty Officer Cedric D. Wilson, a 1991 Westover High School graduate, recently joined the Naval History and Heritage Command located at the Washington Navy Yard in D.C. 

In his new position as the senior listed advisor, Wilson has the distinct opportunity to be a part of a unique Department of the Navy echelon which collects, preserves, and makes available the official records, artwork, artifacts, documents, photographs, and other materials that best embody the U.S. Navy's history and heritage.

The chief directly supports NHHC's efforts by being the top enlisted leader among 250 employees involved in the countless activities that NHHC is responsible for including the Navy Department Library, the Navy Operational Archives, the Navy art and artifact collections, underwater archeology, Navy histories, nine museums, USS Constitution repair facility and the historic ship Nautilus.

“I've enjoyed learning the command's mission and being able to provide inputs from the senior enlisted perspective to the chief petty officer mess,” said Wilson. 

He hopes to become a valuable member of the organization in providing guidance regarding Naval History. His assets are a necessary ingredient for supporting these historically relevant resources and products which reflect the Navy's unique and enduring contributions through our nation's history.

His leadership skills with the fleet will help enable professional research, analysis, interpretive services and within a variety of social media platforms.
