DLA Distribution Commanding General's MLK Day Message

DLA Distribution Team,

On Monday, 15 January 2018, we will celebrate the life and the lasting contributions of one of humanity’s most incredibly remarkable leaders … Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  

Dr. King was a caring, compassionate, and courageous leader whose deeds and actions continue serving as a great example of hope, love, and moral strength.  He devoted his life to the betterment of the world around him and his legacy endures because of his incredibly powerful message and the methods by which he chose to attain his ideals.  

Dr. King said, "Life's most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” and I’d ask that we all take a moment to reflect on this question.  I encourage each of us to take the day’s theme “A Day On, Not a Day Off” to heart and consider taking time to make a positive difference within your community.  It is through our service to others that we will honor the quest of Dr. King’s great dream.  For ideas on how to give back, please visit to find opportunities to volunteer.

Ms. Gonzales and I thank you for the phenomenal work you do every day.  Your hard work and dedication do not go unnoticed as we collectively sustain the Warfighter around the globe.  We are proud to be on this great DLA Distribution team.
