NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa. –
DLA Distribution’s Army Maj. Christina Lewis was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel during a Feb. 2 ceremony officiated by DLA Distribution commanding general Army Brig. Gen. John Laskodi.
The Distribution Future Plans EUCOM/AFRICOM planner was surrounded by friends, family and coworkers as she had her new rank pinned on by her niece, Ally, and then recited the oath of office.
