The Secretary of Defense Maintenance Awards honor the “best of the best” within the DoD maintenance community. A team of senior maintenance leaders from the Office of the Secretary of Defense and across the Military Services selects the top six field-level military maintenance organizations from active and reserve units worldwide. Of the six winning units, one is selected as the top maintenance unit for the year and receives the DoD’s highest field-level maintenance award, the Phoenix Trophy (shown). Also awarded are the Robert T. Mason Award for Depot Maintenance Excellence, as well as the Secretary of Defense Award for Maintenance Training, Advice, and Assistance of Foreign Security Forces.
