Superior Civilian Service Medal

Superior Civilian Award

Minnesota National Guard Major General Richard C. Nash recently presented St. Paul Postmaster Mike Larson with the Minnesota Superior Civilian Service Medal for his work supporting service members overseas and at home.

Under Larson’s leadership, the annual Shop, Ship & Share (SSS) event, which links the efforts of USPS, the American Legion, schools and other community organizations, has provided more than 3,500 holiday gift boxes in the past six years – more than 875 this year alone — for area service members stationed overseas.

Nash also praised Larson for his participation in an annual Veteran’s Day recognition event and a leadership style “that makes the St. Paul Post Office a veteran and military-friendly workplace.”

The Superior Civilian Service Award was created by the Governor of Minnesota in 2008 to recognize the efforts of those, who in the execution of their civilian job, go above and beyond the call of duty to support and aid military members. Larson is the 15th recipient of the honor.
