MDAA’s annual Missile Defender of the Year awards a United States Armed Forces member from each branch that is in command of a fully operational and deployed missile defense system. These select individuals represent the best in leadership and performance of their duties and demonstrate their commitment to excellence in the critical role of missile defense.
