My name is:
Latasha McGee

I am:
A resolution and transportation specialist for DLA Energy Pacific at Hawaii.

Describe your job in a sentence:
I manage fuel inventory and processing for 10 defense fuel support points; oversee processing for 33 fuel accounts distributed across the Hawaiian islands; and coordinate and schedule fuel deliveries to four military installations on Oahu.

How long have you worked at DLA?
I began working at DLA in November 2017.

What is your favorite thing about working for DLA?
It’s evident that serving the warfighter is the first priority. The commitment I see from my co-workers is astounding and admirable. Working at DLA has provided a feeling that my work ethic, diligence and commitment to the warfighter is not unnoticed and is greatly appreciated.

What are your best memories of working here?
At my predecessor’s going-away luncheon, he fought back tears as he spoke. I thought, “This must be a really good place to work if he’s crying during his going-away speech.”

How do you make a difference?
Accountability! My job supports the warfighter by ensuring the fuel needed to support their missions and exercises is well accounted for. We ensure that no negligence, fraud or theft is being done against the government. Fuel is essential to the warfighter in all modes of transportation, during wartime and peace.
