President Barrack Obama has awarded Naval Support Activity Panama City the Commander in Chiefs Award for Installation Excellence. Out of more than 70 bases around the world NSAPC was chosen as the top in the naval category.
NSA Panama City came away with the honors announced in may after trumping Naval Air Station Jacksonville in the final two nominees.
According to the letter from the President, the team at NSA PC exceeded the demanding requirements that come with supporting 18 difference tenant commands and other activities, while providing excellent customer services and quality of life for service members and their families who live and work aboard the installation.
Now flying high over NSA's installation is the Commemorative Commander in Chief's award flag which, starting Wednesday, will fly for the next 365 days.
"It's one thing to say, 'oh, we were in the top ten', but this was number one," said Mayor of Panama City Greg Brudnicki. "This is the only one that got an award."
For 2013 we were recognized for our contributions to efficiency to taking care of our sailors and taking care of our tenant commands and supporting their missions," said Commander of NSA PC Anthony Anglin. "So for that calendar year we were recognized the folks that did that the best."
