RICHMOND, Va. — The 715th Military Intelligence Battalion, 500th MI Brigade, received a Supply Excellence Award for an active duty parent organization, here, May 12.

The Chief of Staff’s Combined Logistics Excellence Awards, also known as “CLEA,” pulls together and awards units nominated for maintenance excellence, deployment excellence and supply excellence.

The CLEAs recognize the best logistics programs in the Army.

Sgt. 1st Class Kory Durham, senior enlisted logistician, 715th MI Bn., accepted the battalion’s award and a congratulation letter from Lt. Gen. Mitchell Stevenson, deputy chief of staff of the Army for logistics.

To win the award, the 715th MI Bn., 500th MI Bde., achieved excellence on an evaluation of its battalion’s unit supply and arms room procedures.

Judges from the U.S. Army Transportation, Quartermaster and Ordnance centers traveled around the world to conduct on-site evaluations of command-nominated units.

Units were selected for the awards based on outstanding qualities they displayed for judges during these visits.

The award program was created during the Total Army Worldwide Supply Conference held November 1984. The program recognizes excellence at multiple unit and organizational levels.
