EPA to award Navy Environmental Protection Medal to officers for environmental protection work

Fox News is reporting that the Navy Environmental Protections Medal will be awarded to officers of the U.S. Navy for environmental service work during the 2017-2018 fiscal year.

This is the second award of this type this year.

In March, the Navy announced that it would award a Navy Environmental Defender Medal to two officers for their environmental protection service work.

The Navy has previously awarded two Navy Environmental Defenders Medals to two environmental defense personnel during the same fiscal year: Navy Environmental Defense Corps Corps Corps members for environmental defense work and Navy Environmental Protected Corps members to assist in environmental defense training.
