Sgt. Gabriela J. Williams, a warehouse clerk with 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, was awarded the III MEF Marine Corps Association & Foundation Noncommissioned Officer of the Year award during the inaugural MCA&F dinner at the Butler Officers’ Club, Okinawa, Japan, Jan. 12, 2018.

Williams is a native of Miami. “I’m leading from the front for my Marines,” said Williams. “Everything I do is so that they can be a better reflection of me.

There are corporals and lance corporals out there that are smarter than me.

You can always take something from them.

It is an honor to receive this award, but there’s always room to improve.”
