DLA Distribution Commanding Officer's Veterans Day Message 2018

DLA Distribution Teammates,

This year, Veterans Day marks the Centennial Commemoration of the end of World War I on November 11, 1918, “The War to End All Wars”.   On this day, we pay singular tribute to the men and women who continue to place their lives on the line around the globe.  They represent the essence of our great nation…courage, duty, character, sacrifice. 

To all our Veterans – thank you.  Thank you for everything you’ve done for our country.  You are among the best our nation has to offer.  Among our Distribution family are thousands of heroes who have served, some dedicating a major part of their life to military service.  Even though some may no longer wear the uniform, by performing our critical mission, they continue to build upon the success founded in the sacrifice of generations who served before and will serve in the future.

Ms. Gonzales and I would like to thank each of you for your selfless service, your commitment to duty, your integrity and your loyalty to the DLA Distribution family.  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!

Enjoy the upcoming long holiday weekend, incorporate safety into everything you do, and remember to keep our service members and DoD Civilians deployed in harm's way in your thoughts and prayers. 

Happy Veterans Day and HOOYAH Distribution!
