GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  AS ESTABLISHED IN THE REF, SUBJECT AWARD
RECOGNIZES DEMONSTRATED EXCELLENCE IN TOTAL INSTALLATION MANAGEMENT
THROUGHOUT THE DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE.  A SINGLE AWARD IS PRESENTED
TO AN INSTALLATION WITHIN EACH MILITARY SERVICE AND THE DEFENSE
LOGISTICS AGENCY AT A CEREMONY HELD AT THE PENTAGON ON AN ANNUAL
BASIS.
2.  IT IS WITH GREAT PLEASURE THAT I CONGRATULATE THE MARINES AND
SAILORS OF MARINE CORPS AIR GROUND COMBAT CENTER (MCAGCC) TWENTYNINE
PALMS, CALIFORNIA AS THE MARINE CORPS' WINNER OF THE FISCAL YEAR
2006 COMMANDER IN CHIEF'S INSTALLATION EXCELLENCE AWARD.  THE
INSTALLATION WILL BE HONORED AT A JOINT DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE
CEREMONY ON 4 MAY 2007, AT 1400, IN THE PENTAGON'S AUDITORIUM.
3.  MCAGCC WAS SELECTED BASED ON ITS DEMONSTRATED COMMITMENT TO
EXCELLENCE IN PROVIDING THE PLATFORM TO SUSTAIN COMBAT READINESS OF
MARINES AND SAILORS WHO DEPLOY TO THE INSTALLATION TO TRAIN, AS WELL
AS PROVIDING OUTSTANDING QUALITY OF LIFE SUPPORT TO THEIR TENANT
COMMANDS AND THEIR FAMILIES.  MCAGCC DEMONSTRATED A STRONG SENSE OF
COMMUNITY WHILE SETTING EXEMPLARY SERVICE DELIVERY STANDARDS FOR ITS
USERS.  THE CENTER WAS ALSO RECOGNIZED FOR ITS LEADERSHIP AND
TEAMWORK IN DEVELOPING PROGRAMS THAT DEMONSTRATED SUPERIOR
INNOVATION, EFFICIENCY, AND EFFECTIVENESS IN INSTALLATION SUPPORT.
THESE ACCOMPLISHMENTS WERE ESPECIALLY SIGNIFICANT GIVEN THE FACT
THAT A SIGNIFICANT PERCENTAGE OF THE MARINES SUPPORTING THE
INSTALLATION WERE DEPLOYED IN SUPPORT OF OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM AND
OTHER MARINE CORPS OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS DURING THE AWARD PERIOD.
4.  REQ WIDEST DISSEMINATION TO ALCON.
5.  SEMPER FIDELIS.//
