The Officer in Charge of Construction, Marine Corps Marianas (OICC MCM) ), recently won the Secretary of the Navy (SECNAV) Safety Award in the ashore category for Fiscal Year 2021. The annual award recognizes Navy and Marine Corps units for unparalleled safety achievements and occupational program performance. 

“The SECNAV Safety Excellence Award is the biggest annual award for safety in the Department of the Navy, recognizing great strides in continuous process improvement in our Safety Management System, protecting our teammates and resources, while working to fulfill the Department’s readiness missions,” says Rear Adm. John Korka, commander, Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC). “To be recognized as the top among all shore and expeditionary commands is a tremendous honor.”
