FORT BELVOIR, Va. -- The U.S. Army Materiel Command has selected the 10 winners of the 2008 "Louis Dellamonica Award for Outstanding AMC Personnel."
AMC selected employees who stood out as model employees as this year's recipients.
"The nominees are judged on how their initiatives measurably improve their work environment and AMC's mission, how they motivate and inspire fellow employees to improve or increase the quality of their own work, and how well they are viewed by peers, subordinates, and superiors. These employees competed against other AMC employees for this coveted honor - they are truly the best of the best," said Ann Conyers, chief of AMC's field support division, G-1.
This award, formerly called the "10 Outstanding Personnel of the Year," was renamed in honor of Louis Dellamonica, a general engineer with AMC's Hawthorne Army Depot. Dellamonica was both the oldest and longest-serving Department of Defense employee before retiring in January 2007, at the age of 94 with more than 65 years of service.
Gen. Ann E. Dunwoody, AMC's commanding general, will present a plaque to each recipient at an awards ceremony here May 1.
