FORT LEE, Va. – The Defense Commissary Agency, or DeCA, announced that the Schofield Barracks Commissary won first place in the agency’s most prestigious honors, the Annual Best Commissary Awards, Tuesday.

DeCA’s Best Commissary Awards recognize overall excellence in commissary operations and service. Selection of nominees is highly competitive and is based on operations, performance and accountability.

“This recognition pays tribute to the DeCA team — employees and industry partners — who work so hard every day, worldwide, to serve our service members and their families,” said Joseph Jeu, director and CEO, DeCA. “Just to be considered for a Best Commissary Award is an achievement worth noting.”

Winners received their awards at the DeCA and American Logistics Association 2011 Training Event and Conference in Norfolk, Va., Tuesday.

“We were very excited about being nominated,” said Lynne Llanos, assistant store director, Schofield Barracks Commissary.

“(Winning) says that we have been doing a good job. Our sales are up, our inventory is good, and … our customers are satisfied,” she said. “This is very exiting for us, because now we are the best.”

“When a store wins a best commissary award, the glory goes beyond that store’s employees,” Jeu said. “That store’s customers share the wealth as recipients of the benefit from a commissary acknowledged as one of our best.

“It takes a tremendous amount of hard work and teamwork between our employees and industry partners to meet our basic standards for delivering the commissary benefit,” Jeu added. “To exceed those standards, a store is truly representing a commitment to excellence.”
