ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT, Ala. - On April 14, approximately 35 Anniston Army Depot employees were recognized with monetary awards by the TACOM Life Cycle Management Command Integrated Logistics Support Center Product Support Integration Directorate for weapons readiness and sustainment.

This recognition was for work, dedication and significant achievements providing overhauled M2 .50 caliber machine guns on an accelerated schedule in fiscal year 2009. These weapons are used to support the global war on terrorism. Bill Jensen, weapons system manager for the M2, presented the awards on behalf of the PSID.

"The recognition of these employees is especially gratifying in that the customer displays extreme confidence and appreciation in our workforce and the abilities at Anniston Army Depot. The success of this mission is now leading to future workload being discussed, such as technology inserted into legacy weapons," said Tim Spivey, process optimization manager for the weapons-small arms division.
