By Annette Silva DLA Distribution San Joaquin, California

The dedicated men and women of Bulk and Transportation Division at DLA Distribution San Joaquin, California, stepped up to the plate and fulfilled the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s request for bottled water in support of Hurricane Lane affecting the Hawaiian Islands this past Saturday, Aug. 25.


The team loaded 318 pallets of water totaling 540 thousand .5-liter bottles in 16 trucks destined for Travis Air Force Base before transport to Hawaii.


The San Joaquin team received praise from DLA Distribution Commanding Officer Navy Rear Adm. Kevin M. Jones for their efforts in fulfilling the requirement. Jones commended the team for their outstanding customer service and supporting one of DLA’s Lines of Effort; supporting the Whole of Government.  


“I wanted to personally reach out to thank all of you for the outstanding support provided to FEMA for the Hawaiian Islands during Hurricane Lane, said Jones. “The support DDJC provides to the WOG every day is recognized throughout the Agency through your efforts with FEMA, and the ongoing wildfire support you provide to the Forest Service.”


He concluded telling the San Joaquin team to keep up the hard work.
