FORT BELVOIR, Va. (April 24, 2023)—The editors have voted, the readers have voted, and the results are in! Army AL&T magazine, the award-winning publication of the Army acquisition executive, announced today the winners of its annual “ALTies,” honoring the best article, commentary, graphic and photograph that appeared in the magazine in 2022.

“The quality of content we receive from the acquisition community continues to amaze me,” said Nelson McCouch III, the editor-in-chief of Army AL&T. “These winners represent the expertise and talent we have across the workforce. I’m proud of their work and continued support for Army AL&T magazine.”
