Fort Meade to be feted in ceremony at the Pentagon

An awards ceremony to honor Fort Meade as the most improved Army base in the continental United States will be held Thursday at the Pentagon.

Col. Kent D. Menser, the garrison commander, will receive a trophy from Gen. Gordon R. Sullivan, Army chief of staff. Later this year, Fort Meade will receive a $125,000 prize, which has been earmarked for more base improvements.

The Department of the Army holds an Army Community of Excellence competition each year.

The ceremony will take place in the Pentagon Center Courtyard at 3 p.m.
