DLA Distribution Anniston highlights Champion of the Month – Weapons Offload and Tally Team

By DLA Distribution Public Affairs

In a recent newsletter shared with employees, Defense Logistics Agency Distribution Anniston, Alabama, recognized the Weapons Offload and Tally Team as one of the Champions of the Month.

The Offload and Tally team is staffed by TuShun Calhoun, Roger Laymon, Jarred Slaton and Ryan Smith. They distinguished themselves through their excellent work throughout the fall and winter months. The team was tasked with developing an organizational system and creating a plan for backlog accountability.

The team also reorganized and re-inventoried every container in the weapons backlog, totaling more than one hundred thousand weapons, while still unloading over ten trucks a day. The team’s plan decreased the amount of man hours needed to identify high-priority customer returns. Their hard work and effort directly increased productivity by making it easy to easily identify quality material for processing, no matter the circumstances. The team ensured the receiving teams on all three shifts, including when weapons had additional personnel, had quality material staged and ready to process.

Their efforts and dedication to accomplish the mission and meet the requests of the warfighter have positively affected productivity and accountability.
