DLA Distribution Commanding Officer Memorial Day Message

By DLA Distribution Public Affairs

Distribution Teammates,

It’s been a long few months and I know you’re all looking forward to the Memorial Day Weekend. While this year’s holiday weekend during the COVID-19 pandemic will not likely include parades, ceremonies and large gatherings with family and friends, I hope you are all able to pause to remember the heroic and valiant men and women who fought for our freedom and gave the ultimate sacrifice.

I would also ask that you remember the Warfighters who are currently deployed and serving downrange. This weekend, please take time to reflect on what it truly means to live in freedom. We owe all of our veterans a debt of gratitude for their sacrifices in the defense of liberty.

I would also like to extend my gratitude to the entire DLA Distribution Team for your hard work in protecting our people, while maintaining mission readiness and supporting the U.S. Government Response to the COVID-19 pandemic. I am proud to be part of this great team that works tirelessly every day to support the many men and women, both military and civilian, deployed worldwide…there are none better!

Stay safe out there and have a happy Memorial Day weekend.

HOOYAH Distribution!
