Subsistence retiree honored for 30 years of service

By Jason Kaneshiro DLA Troop Support Public Affairs

An employee with the Subsistence supply chain was honored for his 30 years of service during a retirement ceremony Sept. 28.

Ronald Everett, a tailored vendor logistics specialist, served in the Army from 1976 to 1996 and joined Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support in 2007.

Everett’s years of service furthered the excellent reputation of DLA Troop Support, said William Kenney, DLA Troop Support senior acquisition executive, who presided over the ceremony.

“It’s because of folks like yourself, Ronald, that our armed forces are the best equipped in the world,” Kenney said.

One of Everett’s proudest accomplishments while working at DLA Troop Support came when he deployed to Afghanistan in 2014 as a customer account specialist.

“DLA Troop Support has been a valuable learning experience, working with some dedicated individuals in support of our warfighters,” Everett said. “It’s an honor to have achieved this level of success, once in uniform and once without.”

Everett plans to volunteer at the William Jennings Bryan Dorn Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Columbia, South Carolina during his retirement.

“I feel obligated to give something back to my community by volunteering my services,” Everett said.
