Army Maj. Gen. Robert Ashley, commander of the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence in Fort Huachuca, presented the award.


“During her tenure, Ms. Long demonstrated unequaled commitment to the United States Armed Forces, and to the Army in particular, as she propelled the National System for GEOINT and Allied System for GEOINT forward to achieve spectacular success,” said Ashley, who read the award citation. Ashley also said Long’s leadership helped achieve intelligence goals and objectives in the Army.

“It is fitting that the Knowlton Award recognizes her outstanding leadership and contributions to Army intelligence,” said Ashley.
Long, who became the director of NGA in August 2010, said she is humbled by the award.

“This award really belongs to the dedicated workforce at NGA, working around the globe to ensure the Army and all our mission partners have the GEOINT they need, when they need it,” said Long. “I have been fortunate to lead such a committed, mission focused team of professionals.”

Established by MICA in 1995, the award is named after Lt. Col. Thomas Knowlton, who led elite reconnaissance missions during the Revolutionary War for Gen. George Washington. Known as "Knowlton's Rangers,” the group is considered one of America's first Special Forces units.
