Under his command, Carney was awarded two Battle Efficiency awards, the Navy Unit Commendation, Gold and Silver retention excellence awards and the USS Arizona Memorial Award as the most combat-ready ship in the U.S. Navy over a two-year period.

Following this tour, Buzby returned to sea as 6th Fleet Assistant Operations Officer participating in combat operations as part of NATO's Operation Allied Force in Kosovo. He then assumed command of Destroyer Squadron 31 as the Sea Combat Commander for the Abraham Lincoln Battle Group during two deployments in support of operations Southern Watch and Enduring Freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan, respectively.
