Lt. Gen. Henry Glisson, the 13th director of the agency, initiated the DLA Hall of Fame in 1998. His motivation can be found in his remarks from the first Hall of Fame ceremony: “Today we honor some great Americans as well as great patriots. We need to take pause and recognize the people whose accomplishments made us what we are. We have a great legacy and our inductees are largely responsible for that. They set the standards and values for DLA today.”
There are important reasons to honor the more than 100 inductees and to uphold Lt. Gen. Glisson’s original vision. Through the DLA Hall of Fame, we preserve our history, promote DLA values and celebrate excellence. While honoring our past, the standards and values our inductees represent make the Hall of Fame relevant to today’s employees and to the workforce of the future.
