JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) - Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast recognized a Public Works Department (PWD) Jacksonville employee with a lifetime service award during its annual Seabee Ball in Jacksonville, Fla., March 9.
Supervisory Engineering Technician Arthur Mosley was presented the Peggy Craig Life Service Award by Rear Adm. John Scorby, commander, Navy Region Southeast; and Capt. Christopher Kiwus, NAVFAC Southeast commanding officer, in front of more than 300 people assembled for the annual celebration of the anniversaries of the Seabees, Civil Engineer Corps, and NAVFAC.
"Winning this award took me by surprise, because I never anticipated receiving an award for simply doing what I love," said Mosley. "I can attribute this to all of those who I have worked with over the years."
The award was created to recognize employees for 20 or more years of "selfless and dedicated" service to NAVFAC, the 1st Naval Construction Division, the Center for Seabees and Facilities Engineering, or any subordinate unit.
Mosley is part of the history of NAVFAC Southeast. He began with the NAVFAC family in 1975, and currently has 37 years of service with the federal government.
As described in his award, he is a dedicated leader and mentor and has developed close relationships with his staff that extends into their families.
"He is a recognized expert in safety, quality assurance and general construction execution," said Jacksonville's Public Works Officer Cmdr. Anant Patel. "His extensive experience in the singular field of construction has made him a sought after authority, which he is always eager to assist anyone at anytime."
Mosley has achieved much in his career by providing support to his peers and the command's leadership team.
"He takes great pride in developing junior officers by taking them on site visits and providing them with the needed field experience to bolster their construction knowledge," said Patel. "His personal devotion and leadership extends throughout and beyond the PWD organization at Naval Air Station Jacksonville."
