The Commander in Chief's Annual Award for Installation Excellence recognizes the outstanding and innovative efforts of the people who operate and maintain U.S. military installations.  The five recipients of this highly competitive presidential award were selected for their exemplary support of Department of Defense missions.

Installations compete on how well they achieve departmental objectives in several areas of installation management, including mission support, energy conservation, quality of life and unit morale, environmental stewardship, real property management, safety, health and security, communications, and public relations.

Excellent installations enable better mission performance and enhance the working and living conditions for military men and women, DOD civilians and their families.  Each of the winning installations succeeded at being the best in achieving excellence in performing installation management within their Military Service and the Defense Logistics Agency.

Each winning installation will receive a commemorative Commander in Chief's Award trophy and flag and a congratulatory letter from the President.
