FAIRFAX, Va., Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics (NYSE: GD) has been awarded a contract to support the U.S. Army Sustainment Command's Enhanced Army Global Logistics Enterprise (EAGLE) program.  The multiple-award Basic Ordering Agreement has a potential value of $23 billion to all 96 awardees over five years.
