2021 Secretary of Defense Award for Sustainment Training, Advice, and Assistance of Foreign Military Forces

The Institute for Security Governance (ISG) was awarded the 2021 Secretary of Defense Award for Sustainment Training, Advice, and Assistance of Foreign Military Forces for the third year in a row.

ISG’s Colombia Project Team, working side-by-side with the Colombian defense and security sector logistics enterprise, facilitated the development and ongoing implementation of the Ministry of National Defense’s logistics modernization plan, setting the conditions for enhanced Colombian logistics interoperability with the US Department of Defense and with NATO. Colombia is now positioned to become a regional defense logistics leader. ISG’s collaborative approach and direct involvement with Colombia’s Ministry of National Defense, General Command of the Military Forces, Public Forces, and National Police logistics stakeholders is driving efforts to improve sector-wide logistics functions and increasing national sustainment capacity to produce a better return on investment for US security assistance and cooperation. These extraordinary accomplishments reflect great credit upon the Institute for Security Governance Colombia Team, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency, and the US Department of Defense.

The ISG Colombia Team, headed by Regional Program Lead Darryl L. Long, also includes Denny Wetherald, Hal Laughlin, Dan Georgi, Kathy Conley, Michael Boomer, Gordon Grant, and Rick Powell. This award represents years of hard work and bilateral cooperation in support of the Colombian Ministry of National Defense that have significantly advanced the strategic interests of the United States.
