Islander promoted to Navy commander
Chris Hodrick of Jamestown, a Navy civil engineer officer stationed at Naval Station Newport, was promoted to commander recently during a ceremony at the Seabee Museum and Memorial Park in North Kingstown.
During his Naval career, Hodrick has managed the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of Navy facilities around the world. He served as the company commander of Seabee Battalion Three.
“Having served with the U.S. Navy Seabees for much of my career, I felt it was only appropriate that this promotion take place at the original home of the Seabees in North Kingstown,” Hodrick said.
