MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. – Col. Randy J. Lawson, commanding officer, 1st Marine Logistics Group, presented the winners of the force preservation competition with an award certificate and $100 Marine Corps Community Services gift card in the 1st MLG Commanding General’s Conference Room, June 26.

Sgt. Charles Tong, safety manager, Headquarters and Service Company, Combat Logistics Battalion 7, Combat Logistics Regiment 1, 1st MLG, Sgt. Joshua Kenney, light armored vehicle technician, Reparable Management Company, 1st Maintenance Battalion, CLR-1, 1st MLG, Lance Cpl. James Wooten, lot foreman, Heavy Equipment Section, General Support Motor Transport Company, CLR-1, 1st MLG, and Petty Officer 3rd Class Jordan McConniel, corpsman and assistant safety chief, 1st Medical Battalion, 1st MLG, were the winning competitors.

These recipients were recognized for their efforts to identify innovative and creative ideas that will advance a culture of safety within their units.

“We are very pleased with [these Marines] that participated in this competition,” said Lawson. “We think it’s going to pay some dividends and, if nothing else, cause the Marines working with them to think about force preservation and safety. That’s what we’re really after: to get them thinking about the same things we’re thinking about.”
