NCTS Far East Detachment Misawa Recognizes Employees of the Year
By Information Systems Technician 2nd Class William Sahlin - June 13, 2016
In two separate ceremonies held at Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station, Far East Detachment Misawa on May 6 and May 16, 2016, respectively, Mr. Henry Coy was recognized as NAVCOMTELSTA Far East (NCTSFE) Regional Employee of the Year and Ms. Shieri Kudo was recognized as NCTSFE Regional Local National Employee of the Year for fiscal year 2015.

During his service in the Marine Corps, Mr. Coy managed Communications Security material and acted as an Immediate Superior in Command COMSEC Account Inspector and is now serving as the Electronic Key Management System (EKMS) Manager for NCTSFE Detachment Misawa. He manages 1,053 Communications Security Line Items supporting Commander, Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing One, Naval Air Facility Misawa, and deployed aviation squadrons operating in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of responsibility. He was instrumental in training 200 Sailors during bi-monthly EKMS training, enabling sustained EKMS-related professional development for 28 assigned Local Element Representatives.

Ms. Kudo has been with NCTSFE Detachment Misawa for six years and was recognized for her exemplary service as an Operational Target Holder for the Local Network Service Center (LNSC) Misawa. She managed a $25,000 budget while simultaneously tracking and updating 400 asset manifests; ensuring LNSC Misawa's equipment inventory maintained 100 percent accuracy. Her ability to multitask and her due diligence were key to the detachment's ability to support the Western Pacific Patrol and Reconnaissance mission.

Bravo Zulu to Mr. Coy and Ms. Kudo for their dedication to the mission and the amazing support they have provided to Detachment Misawa and the Navy commands supported at Misawa Air Base.
