Combined Logistics Excellence Awards
LTG Mitchell H. Stevenson, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Army for Logistics, presents an award during the Combined Logistics Excellence Awards in 2009.

PENTAGON (June 15, 2010) - Chief of Staff of the Army General George W. Casey Jr. and Under Secretary of the Army Dr. Joseph Westphal will be on hand to recognize 82 outstanding Active, Reserve, and National Guard units being awarded for logistics excellence on June 24, 2010.

The award ceremony will be held in Richmond, Va., and will cap off a week of logistics related events including the Sustainment Commander's Conference and the Association of the United States Army Sustainment Symposium. General Casey will speak at the awards ceremony, and Dr. Joseph Westphal will speak during the CLEA banquet that evening.

The Combined Logistics Excellence Awards, also known as "CLEA," pull together the Army Award for Maintenance Excellence, the Deployment Excellence Awards, and the Supply Excellence Awards, all of which recognize the best logistics programs in the Army. Judges from the U.S. Army Transportation, Quartermaster, and Ordnance Centers traveled around the world to conduct on-site evaluations of units nominated by their commands.

Units are selected based on outstanding qualities recognized by judges on their visits. For example, one winner is the 72nd Expeditionary Signal Battalion, which deployed in 2009 from Mannheim, Germany to Iraq. The Battalion deployed 345 pieces of equipment and 420 soldiers to 34 sites across Iraq. Deployment preparation included a stringent pre-inspection of deploying equipment that resulted in zero deficiencies in equipment standards and documentation. Judges selected the Battalion because of its exceptional performance during such a complex deployment.

This year the judging was much more competitive. Last year, 95 units were recognized from 294 submissions; this year, there were only 82 winners selected from 316 total submissions.

Conducting logistics for the Army is no small task; units around the world are working tirelessly to meet the Army's needs as more troops are deployed to Afghanistan and troops are being drawn down from Iraq. Lt. Gen. Mitchell H. Stevenson, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Army for Logistics, is grateful for the opportunity to recognize Soldiers. "At the Pentagon, we can make policies and plans, but none of it can be achieved without the Soldiers in the field. The Logistics Excellence Awards provide an opportunity to recognize outstanding units and their diligent efforts to sustain the force."
