RMKS/1. REF A ANNOUNCED THE ADMIRAL STAN ARTHUR AWARDS FOR
LOGISTICS EXCELLENCE PROGRAM FOR 2004.  THIS AWARD RECOGNIZES
MILITARY AND CIVILIAN LOGISTICIANS WHO EPITOMIZE EXCELLENCE IN
LOGISTICS PLANNING AND EXECUTION.  A FLAG/SES PANEL REVIEWED
CANDIDATES AND SELECTED WINNERS BASED ON INNOVATIONS WHICH MERIT
SPECIAL RECOGNITION.  I AM PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE CY-2004 WINNERS
AS FOLLOWS:
    A.  THE CY-2004 MILITARY LOGISTICIAN OF THE YEAR IS LT WALTER
B. EGGE IV WHO TRANSFORMED THE SUPPLY DEPARTMENT OF NAVSPECWARUNIT
THREE FROM LOCAL SUPPORT OF COMMAND AND CONTROL FUNCTIONS INTO THE
NAVAL SPECIAL WARFARE (NSW) THEATER LOGISTICS HUB FOR THE ENTIRE
U.S. CENTRAL COMMAND AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY.  HIS LOGISTICS
ARCHITECTURE THAT SUPPORT 540 NSW PERSONNEL IN SUSTAINED COMBAT
OPERATIONS HAS ACCOMPLISHED A SERIES OF "FIRSTS" FOR NSW, INCLUDING
THE FIRST FULL ASSIMILATION OF NSW LOGISTICS INTO THE ARMY AND AIR
FORCE SUPPLY CHAINS, AND THE FIRST TEST OF JOINT LOGISTICS
DOCTRINE.
    B.  THE CY-2004 CIVILIAN LOGISTICIAN OF THE YEAR IS MR. MICHAEL
BARKENHAGEN FROM THE NAVAL SURFACE WARFARE CENTER, CORONA DIVISION,
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CREATING THE CONCEPT AND DEVELOPING THE
SUNSET SUPPLY BASE (SSB) SYSTEM IN PARTNERSHIP WITH INDUSTRY OEMS
AS A COST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION TO SIGNIFICANT ISSUES ACROSS THE NAVY
IN MANAGING THE OBSOLESCENCE OF COMMERCIAL OFF THE SHELF PRODUCTS
USED IN MANY OF OUR MILITARY SYSTEMS.
    C.  THE CY-2004 OPERATIONAL LOGISTICS TEAM OF THE YEAR IS THE
USS HARRY S TRUMAN SUPPLY DEPARTMENT'S LEAN INITIATIVE AND
IMPLEMENTATION TEAM.  THIS TEAM DEVELOPED CREATIVE AND REALISTIC
PROCEDURES TO ELIMINATE WASTE BY EXAMINING CRITICAL PROCESSES
WITHIN THE SHIP'S SUPPLY DEPARTMENT THAT INEFFICIENTLY USED
MANPOWER AND TIME RESOURCES.  THEIR EFFORTS PRODUCED SAVINGS OF
MORE THAN 1,700 MAN-HOURS DURING THE SPAN OF THE HARRY S TRUMAN'S
ARABIAN GULF DEPLOYMENT IN SUPPORT OF OPERATIONS IRAQI FREEDOM
AND ENDURING FREEDOM.
    D.  THE CY-2004 ACQUISITION LOGISTICS TEAM OF THE YEAR IS THE
F-14 SUNDOWN TEAM WITH MEMBERS FROM NAVICP PHILADELPHIA, NAS
OCEANA, AND CNAL N41, FOR DESIGNING AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO
MAXIMIZE SAVINGS FROM THE EARLY RETIREMENT OF THE F-14, WITH
ABSOLUTELY NO COMPROMISE TO READINESS.  THE CORNERSTONE OF THE
TEAM'S STRATEGY IS A PRICING SOLUTION TO ENCOURAGE REUTILIZATION OF
SUPPLY SYSTEMS ASSETS, AS A COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO
CONTINUING LOCAL REPAIR.  BY USING THE AVAILABLE INVENTORY, ONLY
ONE-THIRD OF THE ORIGINAL LEVEL OF MAINTENANCE WILL BE REQUIRED TO
SUPPORT THE F-14 THROUGH THE END OF ITS LIFE.
