RMKS/1.  Before announcing nominees for the Secretary of Defense Maintenance Awards I want to 
personally thank the numerous commands who took the time to recognize their unit contributions.  
Your continued participation ensures that the best maintenance units are recognized for the remarkable 
efforts and support they provide to our warfighters.  It is an honor to review such a large and 
competitive field of deserving units and a pleasure to announce Navy's nominees to SECDEF.  This year's
