Each year, this program gets greater and greater recognition, and I have been amazed at the number of inquiries we've already had this year," said Amol Tembe, Defense Logistics Awards Program Director. "It continues to be a great honor to be a part of recognizing the DoD logistics community for their tremendous contributions in supporting the warfighter," he continued.

Anthony Fleming, the new Director of Defense Logistics, the event which hosts the dinner, will also work on this year's awards program. "Having been an Aircraft Maintenance Officer for 6 years I know how challenging and rewarding logistics, maintenance, and sustainment can be," he said. "It was a privilege to serve with personnel that make the mission happen every day and it's an honor to identify and reward their accomplishments in this forum. It is very appropriate for us to take a night and congratulate the folks that have excelled so that we can thank them and learn from their achievements. It's an honor to run such a prestigious event!"
