Lt Col James Brown RLC has received the Supreme Allied Commander Europe’s Recognition Award at a ceremony in SHAPE Headquarters in Mons, Belgium.

Lt Col Brown is currently employed as Section Head Logistic Operations in HQ Joint Force Command Brunssum (see Spring 18 edition of The Sustainer).

During his tour he also deployed to HQ Resolute Support in Afghanistan from Dec 2017 to May 2018.

Lt Col Brown’s citation referred to his work on NATO’s advanced planning since 2015, development of the logistic concepts for NATO’s Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF) and Enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) deployments and as Commander JFC Brunssum’s liaison officer to Commander Resolute Support.

The SACEUR Recognition Award is second in NATO’s award scheme to the NATO Meritorious Service Medal and is awarded to less than 1% of the NATO Command Structure per year.

Also receiving the same award on the day was Brigadier Duncan Bedding (late RLC) for his work on the establishment of NATO’s Standing Joint Logistic Support Group (SJLSG), of which he is now the inaugural commander.

Lt Col Brown said that he was delighted to receive the award and recommended service in NATO to any officer or NCO looking to broaden their horizons.
