During this period, Master Sergeant Keurig oversaw the 1 million dollar utility meter installation project. He coordinated 35 power outages with minimum impact to customers and reduced the Battalion's energy consumption by 25 percent. As the quality inspector for the new 13 million dollar Professional Military Education facility, he identified 40 discrepancies and over 150 linear feet of structural cracking during construction. His attention to detail ensured compliance with construction standards while enabling the on-time completion of the project. As the NonCommissioned Officer In Charge of the 9-member construction management shop, he oversaw 36 construction projects costing over 500 million dollars and was the driving force behind the successful stand up of the Engineering Group which consolidated the two construction management offices. Sergeant Keurig's extraordinary efforts during this period reflect credit upon himself, the Engineering Group and the United States Army.
SFC Mixon prioritized, planned, and completed nine projects valued at over 1.9 million dollars. His efforts significantly improved the quality of life on the FOB and facilitated mission effectiveness. His foresight, experience, and attention to detail ensured that all designs were reliable and maintainable. He also served as the Contracting Officer's Representative and ensured contractors complied with all aspects of the contracts, projects were completed on schedule, and there were no unforseen cost increases.

MSG Reyes is recognized for outstanding support to the 579th Engineer Battalion. On multiple occasions and involving several different civil engineering scenarios, he provided well placed physical security advice gained from his international port facility security audit experience. He recommended realistic and effective countermeasures to reduce risks using a proven, performance based approach rather than using traditional but ineffective methods. This knowledge transfer improved infrastructure security and resulted in long-term cost savings and reduced physical security threats. The accomplishments of MSG Reyes bring great credit upon himself, the United States Corps of Engineers and the United States Army.
