General Chiarelli, Sergeant Major of the Army Chandler Honored 99 Logistics Units In May 12 Ceremony
May 16, 2011
By HQDA, G-4
RICHMOND (May 17, 2011) -- Ninety-nine logistics units from throughout the Army were honored last week at the Army's 2011 Combined Logistics Excellence Awards (CLEA) in Richmond, Virginia.
On hand to recognize the winners for excellence in maintenance, deployment, and supply operations were General Peter W. Chiarelli, Vice Chief of Staff of the Army; Raymond F. Chandler III, Sergeant Major of the Army; and Lieutenant General Mitchell H. Stevenson, Deputy Chief of Staff of the Army for Logistics.
The 99 units are stationed in 28 states, five countries, and Puerto Rico. Many were involved in last year's historic logistics operations, when the Army moved out millions of pieces of equipment from Iraq and closed hundreds of bases as combat operations ended. Others were involved in moving 30,000 service members and their equipment into Afghanistan, as part of last year's surge, or providing humanitarian aid following the earthquake in Haiti.
"One of the things I like best about these awards is that they are presented to organizations, not individuals," General Chiarelli said. "Without a doubt there are exceptional people, stand-outs even, in each of the depots, companies, maintenance shops, combat support hospitals, installations, and units recognized. But this business of ours is a team sport, and in everything we do we succeed or fail as a team."
Sergeant Major of Army Chandler told the winners their contributions over the last year have been "miraculous" and that because of them "we continue to win our Nation's Wars." He said their job is far from done, especially when it comes to repairing equipment coming out of war zones. "After two years in theater, an armored truck has incurred 10 to 12 years of use," he said. "After two years, an aircraft has eight to 10 years of use. This year, nearly 100,000 pieces of equipment will be reset, which in the long run, will save us millions of dollars."
Last year marked the Army's largest logistics operation in six decades. Lieutenant General Stevenson said: "The herculean efforts of these units on a daily basis made it all possible. They are examples for the entire Nation of how far ingenuity, determination, teamwork, and skill can take us."
The honorees are from Active Army, Reserve, and National Guard installations, and went through a rigorous program to be considered for this award. The competition begins when an Army Command nominates one or more of its units based on published guidelines and regulations. From there, evaluators from the U.S. Army Transportation, Ordnance, and Quartermaster Centers, augmented by Army National Guard and Reserve Soldiers, travel worldwide to conduct on-site evaluations of the units nominated by their Commands.
Following is a list of the 99 CLEA winning and runner-up units:
