Lynda Edwards Wins Award For ABA Journal on Sinking of The ALASKA RANGER

The American Legion has announced it has awarded the American Bar Association Journal its top award for journalism for a story, "The Cemetery Sea," written by Lynda Edwards. The award is for outstanding achievement in the field of Journalism. Edwards battled to write and publish a story not typically printed by the ABA Journal. She should receive special recognition for her outstanding work and the award she has earned for the ABA Journal.

Edwards' award winning article told the story of the 2008 sinking of the ALASKA RANGER in Alaska's Bering Sea. Edwards skillfully portrayed the lives of the crewmen who work risking their lives each day on Alaska fishing vessels and highlighted the maritime injury lawyers who battle big fishing companies and their insurance companies to get fair compensation for crewmen's injuries and deaths. Edwards spent several days in Seattle researching the article. Previous winners of the American Legion's journalism award include NBC, C-SPAN, USA Today, ABC NEWS and Life Magazine.
