RMKS/1.  IT IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE THAT I ANNOUNCE THE SELECTION OF 
NAVAL BASE CORONADO AS THE NAVY'S WINNER OF THE 2008 COMMANDER IN 
CHIEF'S ANNUAL AWARD FOR INSTALLATION EXCELLENCE. 
2.  THIS AWARD RECOGNIZES ONE INSTALLATION FROM EACH SERVICE WHOSE 
COMMAND HAS MADE BEST USE OF AVAILABLE RESOURCES TO ACCOMPLISH ITS 
ASSIGNED MISSION, AND HAS FOCUSED ON INNOVATIVE MANAGEMENT ACTIONS THAT 
HAVE ENHANCED WORK FORCE PRODUCTIVITY WHILE IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF 
LIFE FOR ITS PERSONNEL.  THIS OUTSTANDING INSTALLATION, REPRESENTED BY 
CAPTAIN ANTHONY E. GAIANI (CO) AND COMMAND MASTER CHIEF (AW/SS) MICHAEL 
A. KECK, WILL BE HONORED IN A JOINT SERVICE CEREMONY ON 8 MAY 2008 IN 
THE PENTAGON COURTYARD.

FIELD OF ELEVEN (11) OUTSTANDING NOMINEES.  EACH NOMINEE IS A WINNER

AND I EXTEND A SINCERE "WELL DONE" TO THE SECOND PLACE WINNER:

PATUXENT RIVER.  THESE TOP THREE NAVY WINNERS WILL EACH RECEIVE AN OSD 
CERTIFICATE AND A MONETARY AWARD FOR THEIR SELECTIONS.
