Distribution’s Dawa presented commander’s coin

By Brianne M. Bender DLA Distribution Command Affairs


DLA Distribution’s Diana Dawa, public affairs specialist, received a commander’s coin during DLA Distribution Commanding Officer Navy Rear Adm. Kevin M. Jones’ employee recognition walkabout event Feb. 26.

Dawa has been assisting with the creation of DLA Distribution’s command videos.  While the task is not in her job description, she jumped in to order the necessary equipment — including camera, lights, filters and teleprompter.

“Diana drew on her nine years of field experience as a broadcast journalist for U.S. Army Europe and has been setting up a professional video recording set within Rear Adm. Jones’ office,” said Dawn Bonsell, DLA Distribution public affairs officer. “She also works with him to make him comfortable in front of the camera and talks him through specifics of video messaging.”
