In FY 2005, the Secretary of Defense depot-level award was named the Robert T. Mason Award for Depot Maintenance Excellence in recognition of Robert T. Mason, a former Assistant Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Maintenance Policy, Programs, and Resources. This single award is presented to the outstanding program from a major organic depot-level maintenance facility that exemplifies responsive, transformed, depot-level maintenance support to DoD operating units. The plaque presented to the award winning depot program and Robert T. Mason Trophy are courtesy of the Society of Automotive Engineers International (SAE).
