Army active-duty and reserve-component units that deploy anywhere in the world have the opportunity to showcase their training or contingency deployment successes by entering the 2008 annual Army Chief of Staff Deployment Excellence Awards for deployments made between Dec. 1, 2006, and Nov. 3, 2007.
Units that deployed at the last minute between Feb. 1 and Nov. 30, 2006, and were unable to submit an entry packet for the 2007 awards may also enter the 2008 competition.
Guidance for entering the DEAs and an example of a unit package are available at www.eustis.army.mil. Navigate to DPMO, which will link to the DEA program. An AKO username and password are required for access.
