2013 Torch Bearers Award
January 24, 2013
The Defense Intelligence Agency seeks to honor former Agency employees who distinguished themselves during their careers with extraordinary achievements in leadership and who demonstrated an exceptional level of commitment that had significant impacts upon DIA and the Intelligence Community.
The DIA Torch Bearers Award was created in 2010 to recognize outstanding achievements and long-term contributions to defense intelligence, and whose performance embodied the Agency's core values and principles.
Any current or former Department of Defense or Intelligence Community employee may submit a nomination package for consideration by a board that convenes annually to review the nominations and makes recommendations to the DIA Director.
Any person who served in DIA as a civilian or a military professional, or who has a combination of both civilian and military service, is eligible for consideration. Nominees must have completed their service with DIA on or before June 1, 2010 to be eligible for consideration in 2013. Former DIA Directors and DIA Deputy Directors are ineligible.
This year, the Director has requested that nominations be submitted by April 1, 2013, which will allow the selected honorees to facilitate travel arrangements for a formal recognition and induction ceremony in September.
Questions or nominations should be submitted with "2013 DIA Torchbearers Award" as the subject line. Please email DIA-PAO@dodiis.mil with questions or to submit an award nomination package.
DIA is the nation’s premier all-source military intelligence organization.
It provides the nation’s most authoritative assessments of foreign military intentions and capabilities. The agency’s four core competencies -- human intelligence, all-source analysis, counterintelligence and technical intelligence -- enable military operations while also informing policy-makers at the defense and national levels.
DIA’s mission is unique and no other agency matches its military expertise across such a broad range of intelligence disciplines.
