ACLC employee receives award for his leadership, mentorship and incredible drive for excellence

By Lisa Hunter, U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command

For the second year in a row, a U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command employee assigned to AMCOM’s Aviation Center Logistics Command, received the Army Materiel Command Dellamonica Award.

Todd Cobb, a supervisory logistics management specialist, said he was surprised by the recognition.

“I didn’t know anything about getting the award,” Cobb said. “I was on vacation in Las Vegas. One of my employees sent me a text congratulating me. I was really surprised.”

The Louis Dellamonica Award for Outstanding AMC Personnel of the Year recognizes outstanding work accomplishments that have significantly contributed to AMC’s mission and overarching goals and objectives. Nominees are judged on how their initiatives measurably improve their work environment and AMC's mission, how they motivate and inspire fellow employees to improve or increase the quality of their own work, and how well they are viewed by peers, subordinates and supervisors.

Cobb and his teammates are assigned under ACLC, based at Fort Rucker, Alabama, but they work at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, supporting the thousands of Soldiers who train there each year.  The Fleet Management Expansion or FMX program at Fort Sill performs year-round scheduled and unscheduled maintenance on air defense artillery platforms.

The Fort Sill FMX site provides maintenance support for every piece of equipment that our basic trainees travel in and advanced individual trainees train on, Cobb said.

Cobb was selected from thousands of employees to represent AMCOM for the award.

“Mr. Todd Cobb is the quintessential logician,” said ACLC deputy commander, Kye Allen. “His vast operational knowledge of the Fires Center of Excellence mission at Fort Sill, exceptional program management skills and outstanding communications enables AMCOM, ACLC, Missile & Fires Division to professionally provide maintenance and logistics requirements on 18,300 pieces of equipment training over 35,600 soldiers yearly - truly amazing.”

The results of Cobb’s efforts are the ACLC team providing effective maintenance and logistics support to the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command Field Artillery and Air Defense Artillery Soldiers at the Fort Sill’s Fires Center of Excellence.

“Mr. Cobb is an amazing example of the dedicated civilians we have on our team,” said ACLC commander, COL Matthew Parker. He has, and continues to, set the example of maintenance and logistics professionalism and leadership excellence. Keeping the over 1,000 pieces of Field Artillery and Air Defense Artillery equipment along with the over 10,000 pieces of rolling stock in operation is no small feat. It is a comfort to know we have teammates like Mr. Cobb who will ensure we always take care of people and accomplish the mission in support these great [U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command] school houses on behalf of AMCOM and AMC.

Cobb was humbled and appreciative when he learned of the recognition.

“I really appreciate the award and my leadership for submitting me for this award,” he said.

The Dellamonica Award is named for Louis Dellamonica, an engineer known for excellence in his work. He served at Hawthorne Army Depot in Nevada for 65 years. He retired in 2007 at the age of 94.  

ACLC employee Robert Tillery was the AMCOM recipient last year.
