REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. - Ten Army Materiel Command employees have received the highest performance award given annually in recognition of innovation, leadership and dedication to the mission. The awardees include Julian Villar Jr., Army Sustainment Command, Installation Property Book Officer for Supply and Services Division, Army Field Support Battalion Joint Base Lewis-McChord, 404th Army Field Support Brigade.

The employees received the 2020 Louis Dellamonica Award for Outstanding U.S. Army Materiel Command Personnel of the Year. The awardees were selected from across the AMC enterprise, which spans all 50 states and more than 150 countries, and is comprised of more than 175,000 employees.

"These employees exemplify high standards of performance and dedication, and represent the best of AMC employees around the world who exhibit the Army values daily," said AMC Chief of Staff Brig. Gen. Walter Duzzny.

Each year, AMC selects employees, both military and civilian, below the rank of General Officer and Senior Executive Service level, whose outstanding work accomplishments have significantly contributed to AMC's mission, and overarching goals and objectives. Nominees are judged on how their initiatives measurably improve their work environment and AMC's mission; how they motivate and inspire fellow employees to improve or increase the quality of their own work; and how well they are viewed by peers, subordinates and supervisors.

The award is named in honor of Louis Dellamonica, a general engineer whose 65-year career at Hawthorne Army Depot, Nevada, exemplified integrity, innovation, leadership and outstanding dedication to Army Materiel Command's mission.
