DLA Land and Maritime Hall of Fame

The DLA Land and Maritime Hall of Fame, much like the DLA Hall of Fame, was established to honor and preserve the memory of past associates for their exceptional leadership, service, dedication to duty, and contributions in supporting the DLA mission.


This title is not limited to DLA Land and Maritime, the organization, but includes the entire DLA Columbus family housed on the installation. It also includes former DLA activities such as the Defense Supply Center Columbus, Defense Construction Supply Center, the Defense Electronics Supply Center, and the Defense Depot Columbus Ohio.
