The purpose of the CLEA program is to enhance the logistical readiness and effectiveness of USASOC organizations. The Army’s CLEA program consists of the Army’s Awards for Maintenance Excellence (AAME), the Supply Excellence Award (SEA) and the Deployment Excellence Award (DEA) programs.
Col. Martin S. Wagner, the deputy chief of staff G4 and host of the awards ceremony, congratulated all of the awardees and noted their performance that shows efficiency and stewardship in resource management.
“It’s an honor and privilege for me to be here and award those who are doing the routine things routinely well,” said Wagner.
The United States Army John. F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School won the FY12 Chief of Staff Army Supply Excellence Awards level II (B) TDA Property Book for outstanding supply and logistics accountability.
