Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, CACI Chairman, Honored With Admiral Of The Navy George Dewey Award From Naval Order Of The United States

CACI International Inc ( NYSE:CACI) announced today that Dr. J.P. (Jack) London, USN (Ret.), CACI Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board, was honored with the Admiral of the Navy George Dewey Award by the Naval Order of the United States. The award, established in 2001, honors a U.S. citizen eligible for membership in the Naval Order for unique achievements based on exceptional insight, persistent effort, and firm determination to continually advance the interests of the U.S. and its Sea Services. The presentation was made at a formal ceremony during the Naval Order’s annual congress in Charleston, S.C. on November 2.

The Naval Order of the United States was founded in 1890 by descendants of New England seafarers in support of the seagoing services based on their own and their ancestors’ military maritime service. The Order’s “charge” is to encourage research and writing on naval and maritime subjects and to promote the preservation of historic artifacts and memories of naval and maritime history. London’s ancestor, Captain Samuel Nicholson, served in the American Revolution (1776-83) and was the first commanding officer of the USS Constitution.

Dr. London is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy (1959) and the Naval Postgraduate School (1967). He holds a doctorate in business administration conferred “with distinction” from George Washington University (1971). In 2011, he was inducted into the Naval Postgraduate School Hall of Fame, honoring alumni who have made the greatest contributions to society, their nations, and the university. Earlier this year, he was honored with the Nathan Hale Award from the Reserve Officers Association. Dr. London serves on many boards, including the Board of Directors of the U.S. Naval Institute, the U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation, and the Naval Historical Foundation. He is also an active member of the Navy League and the Naval Order of the United States. He recently authored a book, Character: the Ultimate Success Factor, that provides an insightful and practical demonstration of how character, expressed through attitudes, actions, and resilience, is the key to long-term success. Many of the anecdotes about character and leadership in the book are from his Navy career.

During his 12 years of active duty as a Naval Officer (1959-1971) during the Cold War, he was a naval aviator and carrier pilot serving with U.S. Navy “hunter-killer” task forces arrayed against the Soviet Union’s strategic nuclear submarine threat. He served during the Cuban Missile Crisis quarantine (1962-63). At the height of the Vietnam War, he served as aide and administrative assistant to Adm. J.D. (Jack) Arnold, the Vice Chief of the Naval Material Command, Department of the Navy. Dr. London left active duty in 1971 and joined the U.S. Navy Reserve, retiring as a captain in 1983, after having served as commanding officer of aeronautical engineering units with the Naval Air Systems Command, Washington, D.C. Following active service, he was instrumental in helping to build CACI into a worldwide information solutions and services company with approximately 15,000 employees serving vital national needs in defense, intelligence, homeland security, and the modernization of government.
