Sue Gibson, inventory management specialist at DLA Distribution Red River, Texas, was awarded the Achievement Medal for Civilian Service by U.S Tactical Command, on Mar. 8. 

Gibson received the award for her service as a special projects office inventory management specialist at DLA Red River during the period from July 2007 through October 2016.

“Sue Gibson is one of the project managers here at Red River that manages the all the stock for the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles. TACOM came down here to present Ms. Gibson the Achievement Medal for Civilian Service for her exceptional performance as the Special Projects Office Inventory Management Specialist. The office is the distribution hub for all the fielding exercises in support of the MRAP vehicles since July 2007. We are proud to be a part of the support efforts for United States Armed Forces,” said Laura McDaniel, Red River supervisory general supply specialist.

Gibson was the cornerstone in the MRAP strategy to use Red River as the Program Office’s distribution hub for fielding support and maximizing flexibility to respond to changing warfighter requirements.

Additionally, Gibson’s efforts were critical in successfully fielding over 15,000 MRAP vehicles to warfighters in the U.S. Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force.

“This award is a direct reflection of the hard work that Ms. Gibson performs on a daily basis. It is always a special moment when our customers take the time out of their busy schedule to recognize an employee for all the work they do to support the warfighter,” said DLA Distribution Red River commander Army Lt. Col. Anthony Stoeger.
