BATTLE CREEK, Mich. –
Capus Bryant wants the used property that comes through his warehouse doors to go right back out again.
“I enjoy serving my clients and helping all branches of the military,” said Bryant, the Alaska-based Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services Employee of the Quarter for the final quarter of fiscal 2022. “I like ensuring that they receive property that they don’t have to spend their allocated funds on. I love seeing property go back out for more usage.”
Bryant has served with DLA Disposition Services for just over two years – all at its Anchorage site – as a property disposal specialist. In that short period, his efforts have earned him greater responsibilities, both as the newly designated facility manager and as the sole Reuse, Transfer and Donation program specialist for the largest state in the nation.
Bryant shipped 274 RTD line items and pulled, packaged, and shipped 216 items to be demilitarized in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, according to Alaska Area Manager Chris Milazzo. Additionally, he submitted 15 work orders and closed out seven aged work orders while wearing his facilities hat.
“During the 4th quarter, Capus singlehandedly claimed the number one category for our enterprise on his pick-to-ship metric, which is currently at 1.3 days,” Milazzo wrote. “These results are a direct reflection of his dedication to accomplishing tasks in an organized and structured method.”
Bryant developed an RTD plan of action that decreased customer wait times, cleared out all aged DEMIL property on the site, personally inspected all facility needs and addressed or updated all the old data, Milazzo said.
“Capus is always willing to face adversity, apply his critical thinking skills, and deliver impeccable results that consistently lead to overall team and mission success,” Milazzo wrote.
For his part, Bryant said that coming to work each day to serve with a great group of people was a pleasure.
“I like that this agency is very family-oriented and truly cares about its employees,” Bryant said, also noting that he also appreciated DLA’s ‘room for growth’ and advancement opportunities. “‘All for one and one for all’ is an understatement. We are a family here [in Alaska].”
