NAVFAC Southeast presents Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal

09/11/13

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast Commanding Officer Capt. Christopher Kiwus presented the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal (fourth award) to Lt. Cmdr. Shawn Rockwell, newly assigned NAVFAC Southeast South Central Integrated Product Team (IPT) leader, in a brief ceremony Sept. 9.

Rockwell was recognized for meritorious service while serving as Public Works Officer for NAVFAC Europe Africa Southwest Asia at Public Works Department Souda Bay from June 2011 through July 2013.

Rockwell displayed exceptional leadership, initiative and resourcefulness in managing a full range of public works and engineering functions, according to the award citation.

“He managed an annual business volume of $35 million despite significant staffing and resource shortfalls,” said Kiwus during the award presentation. “He provided direct operational support to the warfighter with a superb commitment to mission accomplishment in a highly fluid and constantly shifting national security environment.”

During Operation Unified Protector (the NATO operation enforcing United Nations Security Council resolutions 1970 and 1973 concerning the Libyan civil war, and other regional contingency operations following the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya) Rockwell successfully planned, designed and executed construction of $110 million in military construction and special projects.

“It was one of the most rewarding assignments I've had in the Civil Engineering Corps,” said Rockwell. “Supporting contingency operations, while at the same time, executing normal day-to-day business operations was very rewarding. The award truly defines our accomplishments as a team at Souda Bay. Plus, it was a beautiful place to work - the scenery, the culture and the people were fabulous.”

The award’s final citation read, “Rockwell’s superlative performance, steadfast perseverance and outstanding devotion to duty reflect credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval service.”
