DLA Distribution Commanding General's National Women's History Month Message

By DLA Distribution Public Affairs

Distribution Teammates,

Throughout the month of March, the Department of Defense joins the nation in honoring National Women’s History Month, recognizing the invaluable contributions of military and civilian women who have inspired and shaped our Nation.

This month’s newsletter highlights the achievements of many trailblazing women, including Admiral Michelle Howard, USN, retired, the first female Navy four-star admiral and Roxcy O’Neal Bolton, a 20th century women’s rights pioneer.

Many great women, military and civilian, blazed the trails and left legacies at DLA Distribution that have forever changed the DLA Distribution landscape – Ms. Phyllis C. Campbell, SES; BG (RET) Barbara Doornink; Ms. Jerri Taylor; Ms. Patricia Kuntz and Ms. Twila Gonzales, SES (Retired) – just to name a few; and when I look around the enterprise today, we have many more female logistics professionals carrying on the legacies of those who have come before them; blazing their own trails and setting examples for those to follow.

As we celebrate National Women’s History Month, I’d like to ask that as you reflect on our nation's history and progress, you also recommit to advancing equal opportunity for all.

Special thanks to the EEO team for educating all of us each month through their Special Emphasis Program. Keep up the extraordinary work!

Mr. Knight and I would like to thank you for everything you do to support our Warfighters and our federal partners. Keep striving for excellence and look after one another. Stay safe!
