Meritorious service while assigned as Security Manager, 515th Engineer Company, 5th Engineer Battalion, Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri from 20 September 2016 to 02 August 2018. Staff Sergeant Carlos B. Johnson's leadership, integrity and dedication to duty led to unprecedented success in the unit's security program. Without experience or training, Sergeant Johnson excelled at ensuring security as security manager by implementing procedures and protocols to comply with Homeland Security Directive 12 for contractor access to federal facilities. His integration with program managers, contractors and the installation information protection office minimized delay and risk to more than $150,000,000 of construction and contracted facility operations and services. His attention to detail resulted in the removal of six contract employees with recent violent crime convictions and the detainment of three additional personnel for outstanding warrants. Additionally, he developed and implemented innovative methods for completing Electronic Questionnaires for Investigations Processing (eQIP) security system which reduced the waiting time for new employees to access information services by 50 percent. Sergeant Johnson's commendable performance is in keeping with the finest traditions of military service and reflects credit upon himself, the 5th Engineer Battalion and the United States Army.
