Viera, FL (February 21, 2014) - The National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum Birthplace of The Navy Frogman, located in Fort Pierce, Florida, has over 100 volunteers. They and a small staff of members run almost everything at the only Navy Seal Museum in the country.

While waiting to take photos of the award winners during an annual Museum dinner for the volunteers at the Pelican Yacht Club in Fort Pierce on Saturday February 8th; Pish was caught off guard and was presented with the Distinguished Achievement Award.

The citation recognizes his outstanding professional photography work, documenting museum events, his ambassadorship at reunions and many other contributions to the museum over the years.
