I am DLA

By DLA Public Affairs

My name is:

Randle McClendon.        

I am: 

A DLA Distribution process worker with DLA’s deployable depot at Red River Army Depot, Texas.

Describe your job in a sentence:

I support the warfighter performing a wide range of warehousing duties. I support the Federal Emergency Management Agency during national emergency and humanitarian efforts around the globe.

How long have you worked at DLA?

I’ve worked at DLA for five years.

What is your favorite thing about working for DLA?

Deploying and working with the military service members. Most of the ones I’ve worked with have a supply background. I make it a point to let them know about job opportunities available for them at DLA when they get out.

What are your best memories of working here?

I remember working a hazardous materials mission in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania. We were working second shift outdoors at night. I walked outside during break looking at my phone. When I looked up, there were seven deer 3 feet away from me.

How do you make a difference?

By doing my part to make sure the warfighter gets the correct material in a timely manner.
