UNIVERSITY OF New Hampshire –
Equipment acquired from the Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services was used to help educate and train the next generation of military officers at the University of New Hampshire.
The equipment was acquired by the University ‘s ROTC unit and used to train the cadets during their Friday night labs.
“Every Friday night we hold what we call a Lab, training that takes place on campus but once a semester we have an overnight exercise,” said Army Lt. Col. Andrew Ruszkiewicz who is serving as a Professor of Military Science.
The unit had never used DLA Disposition Services as a source of supply, but Ruszkiewicz brought the knowledge of using Disposition Service as a source of supply.
He added that he had used DLA Disposition Services at other duty stations and found it a useful option to stretch a tight budget.
“We get all types of equipment from DLA Disposition Services to support our mission,” Ruszkiewicz said. Including Tents, heaters and gloves for his 150 cadets.
The labs help Ruszkiewicz’s cadets gain experience, instill confidence and develop their leadership capabilities.
