Operational Service Medal for Afghanistan awarded to LCST team members
Three members of the Logistics Commodities and Services Transformation Programme (LCST) operations team have been recognised for their contribution to Operation CATTALO, the removal of UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) materiel from Afghanistan.
Cameron Macnish, Garrie Seal, and Darren Otterwell are all members of the Operations Team embedded with the customer in MOD Abbey Wood. They were asked to join the British operation on the ground in Afghanistan and, during their time in theatre, they distinguished themselves in executing their duties, leading a team from Leidos, Kuehne-Nagel, and Agility to ensure a successful operation.
For their outstanding service they were awarded the Operational Service Medal for Afghanistan. The campaign medal is awarded by the MOD for service by British Armed Forces personnel in support of the post-2001 Afghan War. The medal is also awarded to UK civilians employed on MOD contracts in support of the British Forces in Afghanistan. Qualifying criteria are the same as HM Forces.
SJFLogC, PJHQ, and DSCOM (MOD business areas) have all recognised the outstanding support received from Team Leidos, which was critical to the overall success of Operation CATTALO and timely withdrawal of materiel from Afghanistan.
The presentation ceremony was held in Emersons Green and medals were presented by Darrell K. Williams, vice president and managing director for the Leidos UK Logistics Division.
