Through its annual Defense Community Awards program, ADC honors the achievements and leadership present in our defense communities, on military installations and within the Department of Defense. This is your opportunity to honor an individual who made a difference for defense communities. ADC will present this year’s awards during the Defense Communities National Summit, June 8-10 in Washington, D.C.
