The reins of command at Defense Logistics Agency Distribution Puget Sound, Washington, transferred from Navy Cmdr. Evelyn Lee, to Navy Cmdr. Timothy J. Calvo, May 27, 2021.

DLA Distribution Commander, Brig. Gen. Keith D. Reventlow presided over the ceremony. “Our guiding principle with DLA is warfighter first, people always and Commander Lee exemplified this principle,” Reventlow said in his remarks.

Demonstrating strong leadership, Lee led efforts to balance workload and resources to provide support to the warfighter, including a well-run execution of Naval Sea Systems Command's wall to wall inventory. Lee’s team completed the inventory of over 85,000 operating materials and supplies and over 70,000 navy items -- three months ahead of schedule, saving the Navy over $740,000. Lee accomplished all of this while exceeding quality and performance metrics across wholesale, retail, and material processing center operations.

Incoming commander, Tim Calvo, a native of Guam, graduated from the University of Portland in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Life Science. He received his commission via Officer Candidate School in 2002. He holds a Master of Business Administration in Financial Management from the Naval Postgraduate School.
His operational assignments include tours on USNS San Jose as the material/stock control officer and supply officer on USS Alaska.

Previous ashore assignments include material operations officer at Naval Medical Center San Diego, California, deputy business financial manager for the Navy and Marine Corps’ Multi-Mission Tactical Unmanned Air System, comptroller for Commander, Submarine Force U.S. Pacific Fleet and he served on the staff of the Director, Warfare Integration.

His joint individual augmentation assignments include serving as deputy logistics officer for the U.S. Security Coordinator for Israel and the Palestinian Authority and as the director for Resources to Commander, Combined Joint Task Force – Horn of Africa in Djibouti.
