For assisting communities after devastating storms and leading vital civil works projects throughout 14 states in the Northeast, the Army recognized three U.S. Army Corps of Engineers civilians assigned to the New York District, North Atlantic Division, Thursday, during a ceremony at the Pentagon.

Under Secretary of the Army Joseph W. Westphal presented the Meritorious Civilian Service Award to Joseph R. Vietri, chief of the planning and policy division; Joseph J. Seebode, deputy district engineer; and Thomas M. Creamer, chief of the operations division. The award is the second highest Department of the Army honorary award.

Thomas M. Creamer was awarded the Department of the Army Meritorious Civilian Service Award for meritorious performance of duty as the chief, operations division, New York District, North Atlantic Division, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, from January 1999 to February 2014.

Creamer was recognized for his key role in the oversight of all of the New York District’s missions, including the ongoing New York and New Jersey Harbor Deepening Program.
