NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa. –
Army Lt. Col. (Promotable) Hattie Richardson, former commander of DLA Distribution Anniston, Alabama, will return to DLA as commander of DLA Central.
Richardson, currently attending the Dwight D. Eisenhower School for National Security and Resource Strategy, served as the commander of DLA Distribution Anniston, Alabama, from June 2014 to June 2016.
During her tenure as distribution center commander, Richardson coordinated the inventorying, processing, and shipment of more than 500,000 small arms, vehicles and artillery, and major end items to more than 60 foreign military sales countries and customers around the globe.
Under her leadership, the distribution center launched a major rack replacement optimization project, resulting in almost 5,000 square feet of additional storage space for new and existing business.
As part of the Army’s M4 and M4A1 conversion, Richardson’s team processed and repacked more than 9,000 weapons, and coordinated the shipment of the M4s to the Anniston Army Depot Small Arms Maintenance shop.
Additionally, Richardson successfully planned and executed the first-ever 100 percent wall-to-wall inventory of all serialized and non-serialized weapons located in the small arms facility at the distribution center.
