A letter signed by Chairman Milo to Mr. Stovall stated:
“Your decades of distinguished service with several prominent companies supporting the military mission have been spectacular. Working jointly with federal counterparts, you were a visionary and innovator in the marketing and presentation of products and services to the Agency and keeping their commissary placement and presentation on the industry’s cutting edge.”
“Your career is personified by patriotism, with an unparalleled work ethic and uncompromising standards. The average defense commissary patron may not fully realize the extent of your superior work, but they have been the beneficiaries of quality products at the best price due to your efforts. You have indeed provided the vital, behind-the-scenes vendor support that allows these commissary privileges to endure for our military community. Moreover, you are deeply respected and admired by this industry and your colleagues in this vital mission.”
“Our military personnel and their families work tirelessly to defend the Nation. They depend on support services to sustain them in this vital mission. While they may not be fully aware of your contributions, they are indeed the beneficiaries of your service as they stand with their families on the frontiers of freedom.”
“Congratulations on a stellar and laudatory career. Your amiable nature, drive and resourcefulness are your hallmarks, and have set a benchmark for all military resale vendors to strive for. Well-done, sir!”
“Please accept this ALA’s Lifetime Achievement Award as a symbol of our appreciation for your remarkable contributions, and recognition of your exceptional professionalism.”
