The Army Chief of Staff is honoring 85 outstanding Army units, who excel in supply, maintenance and deployment logistics, through the Combined Logistics Excellence Awards (CLEA). The awards are going to units from the U.S., Korea, Japan, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Puerto Rico.

The CLEA competition capitalizes on best practices and outstanding accomplishments of Army units that specialize in supply, maintenance and deployment logistics. As Army units improve logistics readiness in these fields, the CLEA provides recognition for their efforts. The awards are given in 30 categories to active duty, Reserve and National Guard units.

"The winners of these awards demonstrate what it means to be Army Strong. They give credence to our theme - The Army: Strength of the Nation," says the Deputy Chief of Staff, G-4, LTG Ann E. Dunwoody. "Most importantly, all of these high performing units-not only the ones being recognized, but all the units who competed-are winners because of this competition. They took on the challenge to demonstrate that they are the best in their business, and we are proud of their achievements."

The competition and award process begins with an Army Command nominating one or more of its units based on the unit's published guidelines and regulations. From there, evaluators from the U.S. Army Transportation, Ordnance and Quartermaster Centers and Schools, augmented by Army National Guard and Reserve Soldiers, travel worldwide conducting on-site evaluations of the units nominated by their commands.

This year 85 units will receive awards; 22 from the Deployment Excellence program, 23 from the Maintenance Excellence program, and 40 from the Supply Excellence Program.

The winners are receiving their awards at the CLEA ceremony and banquet on June 3 in Alexandria, Virginia. The event is sponsored by the Department of the Army and the National Defense Industrial Association. The winners are also treated to a day in Washington, D.C. with a tour of the Pentagon and VIP seats at the Twilight Tattoo.
