The Biggest Loser, Navy-style

FC2 (SW) Derek England runs on the frigate Elrod

This is something every command in the Navy should do. Derek England won his ship’s title of the Biggest Loser. By dropping 41 pounds. Gotta work off the donuts somehow:

Derek England is a loser. In fact, he’s the biggest loser in his whole command. And he’s pretty happy about it.

England is a 26-year-old, surface-warfare-qualified, fire controlman second class onboard frigate Elrod. Since the ship left Norfolk, Va., on Jan. 16 for its current deployment to the Caribbean hunting drug runners, he has shed 41 pounds.

The Biggest Loser, Navy-style. I love it.
