"After winning the Secretary of the Army's energy conservation award four years in a row at the National Guard level, Nebraska placed tenth out of 187 nominations for a Certificate of Recognition during the annual Defense Department energy conservation competition.

"This is the first time ever that the Nebraska Army Guard's energy program has been recognized at the federal level. It was also the first time that a National Guard organization has placed among the top ten government organizations at the Department of Defense level."
