When I first got here, I'll be the first to say I didn't know what DLA Energy really did. I had no idea the depth of our organization, what we provide to the warfighter and just how global our operation really was. For someone to come in to DLA Energy who really doesn't have a grasp of what we do - our mission, roles and responsibilities - what I'd like for them to take away is that we are moving towards "all things energy" for our customers.
For anyone taking a first look at DLA Energy, they need to realize that our non-petroleum missions are just as important as our petroleum missions. We work all the time with products that support alternative fuels, aerostats, NASA's space program and utilities such as electricity, natural gas and coal to name a few. It's not just about petroleum, although that is the bulk of what we do.
