SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. - Nomination packages are now being accepted for the Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command's 2008 Quality Award Program competition honoring Department of Defense approved transportation providers in all modes and services for sustained exceptional performance throughout 2007.

More information and instructions for nominating individuals will be online this year at the SDDC Web site, www.sddc.army.mil.

Maj. Gen. Kathleen M. Gainey, commanding general of SDDC, will present the awards during a special dinner as a finale to SDDC's Training Symposium, April 30, 2008.
