Red River Army Depot was recently awarded the Army’s Best Installation Antiterrorism Program over all Army installations. This is the ninth time the depot has claimed or received runner up for the award (2007-2014 and 2018).
Members of the Red River team recently received the award from Maj. Gen. David P. Glaser, Provost Marshal General of the Army, Commanding General U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, during the FY19 Army Antiterrorism Conference. Accepting the award were RRAD Commander Col. Stephen M. York, RRAD Director for Emergency Services Bill Pass and Installation Antiterrorism/Force Protection Program Manager Scott Van Zile.
The Army antiterrorism awards program is designed to recognize personnel/organizations that have achieved antiterrorism excellence while deterring terrorism through aggressive defensive measures and Army antiterrorism strategic plans.
This is the first year Department of the Army eliminated the category restriction, meaning that all installations in the Army competed on an open platform regardless of size.
“This is a significant achievement for our team and displays all the hard work put into making this an elite program in the Army,” said York. “Our team continues to set a high standard of excellence. Receiving this award nine times really shows how everyone is working together to ensure our personnel, family members and facilities remain safe.”
