By AMC Public AffairsMarch 4, 2020
REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. -- With the induction of two general officers, a command sergeant major and two senior executive service civilians, the Army Materiel Command's 2019 Hall of Fame class is representative of both the military and civilian employees who were instrumental in its success as a provider of materiel readiness.
AMC's Hall of Fame, established in 2012, honors and memorializes Soldiers and civilians who have made significant and enduring contributions to AMC and the Army. The Hall of Fame preserves the command's history and recognizes the exceptional leadership, service and dedication of former AMC members for their remarkable efforts.The 2019 Hall of Fame inductees are former AMC Commanders Gen. Ann Dunwoody and Gen. Dennis Via, AMC Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Mellinger, and SES civilians Kathryn Condon and Vincent Faggioli. They will be inducted in a March 10 ceremony hosted by AMC Commander Gen. Gus Perna at AMC Headquarters at Redstone Arsenal."The great leaders being inducted into the 2019 AMC Hall of Fame significantly contributed to the command's mission of providing logistics, sustainment and materiel readiness to the force," Perna said. "They paved the way and set the standard for the command's future success."Dunwoody, the nation's first female four-star, commanded AMC from 2008 until her retirement in 2012. Via, the first Signal Corps officer to lead AMC, commanded from 2012 until his retirement in 2016. Mellinger, one of the Army's last drafted enlistees to serve, was part of the command group at AMC from 2007 until his retirement in 2011. Condon served as AMC's executive deputy to the commanding general from 2006 to 2009. Faggioli served as the AMC deputy command counsel and then the command counsel from 2007 until his retirement in 2012."Each of the inductees faced opportunities and challenges during their service at Army Materiel Command, leading the organization through the ramp up and retrograde for Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, and other significant operations around the globe," said Perna. "Their contributions to the command were immeasurable, and their legacy will live on for decades to come."
