FORT BRAGG, N.C. - Three Soldiers from Company D, 3rd Battalion, 4th Military Information Support Group have received recognition as the top unit modified table of organization and equipment supply section in all of U. S. Army Special Operations Command for 2010.
Three Soldiers and a civilian from the 4th MISG were also recognized as the top property book office in USASOC for the same period.
The company winners were Staff Sgt. Jubar S. McDaniel, Spc. Jandelle E. Bruce and Spc. Gerald T. Woods.
The headquarters winners were Chief Warrant Officer LaMark A. Wylie, Warrant Officer Alicia Cando, Staff Sgt. Nathaniel Slebo and Benvinda Miller.
The two groups were recognized at a ceremony Sept. 30, by Brig. Gen. Kurt Fuller, deputy commander of USASOC. Fuller said that the recognition is "a really big deal," and the groups will represent all of USASOC at the Department of the Army competition. He also predicted that they will do well at that competition.
Fuller pointed out that it was unusual for the same command to win both awards and it was even more important to recognize the individuals who are responsible for this kind of excellence.
Major David Jones, the S-4 for 4th MISG provided background on requirements for the competition. He said the purpose of the USASOC Supply Excellence Award Program is to enhance the logistical readiness and supply effectiveness of USASOC organizations.
The criteria for evaluation by the judges included overall appearance of the unit, team member technical and tactical proficiency, unit supply regulation policy and procedures, and professionalism and customer service skills.
