A Pearl Harbor-based submarine is being recognized for community service work it does year-round.
The USS Buffalo is one of seven commands in Navy to win the award.
Over the year, sailors on the Buffalo donated to the Dolphin Scholarship Fund and the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society. The society said the Buffalo had the highest per capita donation rate of any command in Hawaii.
The sailors also conducted blood drives for the Armed Services Blood Program.
The 2014 Navy Project Good Neighbor Community Service Flag Award recognizes volunteer programs and outreach projects. The Buffalo earned the honor in the small-sized sea-duty command category.
