Marine Corps Commandant honors MCCS’s Steve Pauli

Date Posted: 2008-09-04

Stephen H. Pauli, Assistant Chief of Staff for Marine Corps Community Services Okinawa, has been recognized with the second-highest honorary award for a civilian employee in the Department of the Navy, the Commendation for Superior Civilian Service.
Maj. Gen. Mary Ann Krusa-Dossin, commanding general, MCB Camp Smedley D. Butler, presented the award to Pauli during a ceremony at her office. The Commendation for Superior Civilian Service is awarded to individuals who achieve significant accomplishments that have a far-reaching and major command-wide impact.
“Steve Pauli’s leadership, vision and initiatives to continuously improve the quality of life of all Marines, Sailors, Airmen, Soldiers, civilian personnel, and family members stationed aboard Okinawa, Iwakuni and Fuji, Japan have paid great dividends and will have a lasting impact upon Marine Corps Base Japan,” Maj. Gen. Krusa-Dossin noted. The nomination cited Pauli as being the driving force behind what many believe is the most successful MCCS program in the Marine Corps, resulting in MCCS Okinawa becoming the recognized benchmark for Quality of Life programs and services.
Since March 2004, Pauli has been responsible for the executive management of all Okinawa-based MCCS programs, services and assets located across eight geographically dispersed Marine Corps installations on Okinawa, and one Marine Corps base at Camp Fuji, Japan. He provides leadership, management, and overall direction for a multimillion-dollar operating budget, which includes labor operations for a culturally diverse workforce of nearly 1,600; maintenance support for approximately 390 facilities; and personal and community support to more than 500,000 patrons annually.
Pauli is a past recipient of the MWR Leadership Award in 2004; the National Park & Recreation Rose Award in 1997; the Armed Forces Recreation Society Executive Fellow Award in 1994; the Civilian Meritorious Service Medal in 1994; and the U.S. Marine Corps Award for Recreational Achievement in 1993. He began his MWR career with the Army in 1977 and has been a NAF civilian working for the Marine Corps since 1991.
