Aviation Hall of Fame nominations accepted through March 31

By DLA Aviation, Public Affairs Office

Nominations for Defense Logistics Agency Aviation’s annual Hall of Fame for 2016 will be accepted March 9 - 31. The Aviation Hall of Fame honors former employees who have made significant and enduring contributions to DLA or DLA Aviation.

To be eligible, nominees must have been separated from DLA or the DLA Aviation community for at least one year from the date of their reassignment, retirement, discharge, or death.

The DLA Aviation community is comprised of both military and civilian government employees from all DLA Aviation locations, or any DLA activity located on the Defense Supply Center Richmond, Virginia. 

Former employees are defined as government civilians and military (active duty and reserve components). Nominees should not be in a position to return to employment with DLA. 

Nominees must meet at least one of the following criteria:

• accomplished an enduring achievement that has life-long specific benefits to the center and Defense Logistics Agency; 

• made a specific or continuous accomplishment positively affecting a large segment of DLA Aviation’s employees, customers and/or vendors; or

• made a long-term contribution that has a lasting and positive impact on DLA Aviation’s mission and/or business practices.

Last year’s inductee to the Hall of Fame was Glen Petrina.

More details on the nomination criteria can be found in the Aviation Hall of Fame guidelines

Any current or former employee can complete their nomination online or email their nomination to the DLA Aviation Awards Coordinator Randy Davis. For more information, call Davis at (804) 279-3664.
