The Awesome Awards - Nominations

Alaina Basciano

Nominated by Patrick Potter
May 20, 2018
Alaina Basciano ha spent the past two decades volunteering thousands of hours promoting the WWII liberty ship John Brown in Baltimore harbor. She has dedicated a large portion of her life inspiring other young women to have an impact in the maritime community with her story and her love for those who served our nation in a time of world war. She is also a license Merchant Marine captain and works for our nation as the chief officer aboard the USNS Henson, a military sealift command survey vessel. Alaina puts her love of country, shipping and people ahead of herself. She works in a male dominated industry but has not let that get in her way. She is respected in the industry and her reputation for being an upstanding officer and a patriot with compassion far proceeds her. I recommend Alaina Basciano for this award because she has gone beyond what is expected of any one person alone!
