NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center (FLC) Yokosuka sites Atsugi and Misawa were each awarded the Blue “E” Ashore Supply Excellence Award for 2016.
The Blue “E” is awarded to commands for outstanding supply aviation support that meets standards of excellence in supply management inspections, monthly type commander pulse points, and supply department training programs. A team award reflects strong support from leadership and supporting departments. Only support detachments that excel in quality and efficiency receive the prestigious annual award. Both sites have received the Blue “E” Supply Excellence Award for six consecutive years.
NAVSUP FLC Yokosuka Commanding Officer Capt. Jeffery Davis stopped by Atsugi on March 24 to personally thank and congratulate the team.
“I think that this is just part and parcel of what makes this team exceptional,” said Davis. “It’s an honor to come out here and personally thank the team and remind them of the significance of what they accomplish, day in and day out.”
Misawa Site Director Senior Chief Logistics Specialist Felix Onejeme praised the exceptional caliber of his team.
“As a result of the dedication, professionalism and outstanding work ethic of our Japanese workforce and assigned military personnel, working cohesively with Aviation Support Detachment Misawa, the team received the Blue “E” Award for the sixth year in a row,” said Onejeme. “This award is a testament to their outstanding excellence in supply management and logistics support to the mission readiness of our warfighters in 5th and 7th Fleet operations.”
