The U.S. Army Materiel Command awarded several employees with the Louis Dellamonica Outstanding Personnel of the Year Award during a May 1 awards ceremony at Fort Belvoir, Va.

The Louis Dellamonica Award recognizes outstanding accomplishments that significantly contributed to AMC\'s mission and overarching goals and objectives. Each year AMC selects 10 employees, military and civilian, below the rank of general officer and senior executive service, which meet the established criteria and stand out as model employees.

This award was named in honor of Louis Dellamonica, a general engineer with AMC's Hawthorne Army Depot, Nev. Dellamonica was both the oldest and longest-serving Department of Defense employee before retiring in January 2007 at the age of 94 with more than 65 years of service.
