By Navy Lt. Kimayah Fulcher, Military Liaison Officer, DLA Distribution San Diego

Defense Logistics Agency Distribution San Diego, California, hosted Marine Corps Brig. Gen. Keith D. Reventlow, commanding general, DLA Distribution for a tour of the DLA Distribution San Diego, facilities.

The purpose of the visit was to provide Reventlow a familiarization brief, facilities tour and discussion of daily operations handled by DDDC that support our Navy/Marine warfighters.

“It’s good to be here and see everything up close,” said Reventlow. “Thank you for what you do, it’s greatly appreciated. We’re a diverse team, whether it’s the service provider or government entity. We may all wear different t-shirts but at the end of the day, it’s all about the mission. We’re all united in that. And I can see that you all pull together and work cohesively day in and day out to support the mission at hand – the warfighters!”

During the visit, DDDC’s commander, Navy Capt. Kerri Yarbrough, touched on the comparison and support the center provides with that of civilian corporations.

“Similar to a Fortune 500 firm, their bottom line is profit and our profit equates to readiness. Everything we do is all about supporting our warfighters and I applaud the DDDC team for their endless dedication, commitment, energy and support as we execute contract transition,” said Yarbrough.
