Long-time DIA employee Ms. Anne Love recently passed away while in residence at a local nursing home. Ms. Love’s career, which spanned 25 years at DIA, began in the late 1940s with the Army Map Service. With the formation of DIA in 1963, she became an agency employee in what became the Military Geography Branch. While her contributions to Defense Intelligence and national security throughout her tenure at DIA are numerous, she probably is best known for the development of the “Contingence Terrorist Package”. This product under her leadership became known as the Contingency Support Package (CSP), a detailed on-the-shelf product to be used in the event a US diplomatic facility overseas was seized. To honor her many contributions, she was selected before her death to receive the 2016 DIA Torch Bearer Award presented annually to former Agency employees who distinguish themselves during their careers with extraordinary achievements and demonstrate an exceptional level of commitment that had significant impacts upon DIA and the Intelligence Community. The Torch Bearer Awards will be presented during the Director's Annual Honorary Awards ceremony in the Tighe Auditorium, DIA Headquarters Building, on 14 December.
