Army battalion honored for accident prevention

The U.S. Army’s 173rd Brigade Support Battalion has earned, for the second year in a row, the Army Safety Excellence Streamer for superior achievement in accident prevention.

The award is given to units that have demonstrated safety excellence, upheld Army safety standards, and have not had any reportable accidents for the past 365 days. All members of a battalion must complete rigorous safety training to be considered for the honor.

Captain Matthew Schneller, commander of the brigade’s maintenance company, deferred credit for the award to members of his company. “The only reason we received this award is because of the fact that our soldiers did great things,” he noted.

 “At the end of the day, commanders can issue guidance and develop a vision, but in the end it takes soldiers to execute and carry out the mission; this is exactly what they have done.”

About half the battalion has been deployed to Afghanistan in the past year. The unit is involved in retrograding excess equipment, delivering supplies, and maintenance and medical tasks. It is headquartered in Bamberg, Germany.
