Christopher Davis Navy

Selma native Christopher Davis serves in the Navy.

Selma native Christopher Davis, who serves in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Dewey, was recently named Sailor of the Week for the Dewey.

Davis, a 2018 Ellwood Christian Academy graduate, currently serves as a yeoman and provides administrative support to crew and command leadership to include handling correspondence, directives, awards, evaluations, mail and legal proceedings.

“Yeoman are extremely valuable to the Navy,” said Davis. “The work we do is important. We make sure all sailors are taken care of and we ensure personnel records, pay entitlements and award recognitions are accurate. We work behind the scenes and almost all paperwork goes through us, the yeoman.”
