Unit awarded Puller Leadership Award for second time

2 May 2011 | Cpl. Melissa A. Latty

Every year a small, medium and large-sized unit within the II Marine Expeditionary Force is awarded the Lieutenant General Chesty Puller Outstanding Leadership Award to commend the unit for superior leadership.

The award, which originated approximately seven years ago, was awarded to 2nd Maintenance Battalion, Combat Logistics Regiment 25, 2nd Marine Logistics Group for the large-size unit category for fiscal year 2010.

“This award signifies balanced excellence within the battalion,” said Maj. William H. Barlow, the 2nd Maint. Bn. commanding officer. “Marines at every level contributed to our success. Each level of leadership has to accomplish their mission for the entire battalion to be successful.”

This is the second time the battalion was recognized for their superior leadership. The unit received the Puller award in fiscal year 2008 as well.

The acting battalion sergeant major, 1st Sgt. Marcelino Del Valle, said receiving the award show the Marines that all of their hard work pays off.

“Things like this keep the Marines motivated and reminds them that what they do makes a huge difference,” he said.

Barlow agrees that the recognition gives the Marines a sense of self accomplishment.

“The Marines don’t always get to see the product of all of their hard work,” Barlow said.  “They see the repaired equipment, but they don’t see get to see the unit out in the field that gets to train because of the equipment they fixed.”

The unit will display their second victory in the halls of their battalion headquarters next to their previous win for all of their Marines to observe and take pride in.
