#SelflessService

“One of the things that I was going to say is that it is all about service,” said Lyle. “It’s not about significance, it’s not about status. Your status doesn’t equal significance, your service does. So, the more you serve, the more significant you become. I really believe that with my whole heart, and there’s nothing more rewarding than serving our great country.”

Happy Birthday to the #Guardians of our United States Space Force

Today marks the Service’s second anniversary, and what a two years it has been. In that time we’ve grown even more dependent on connectivity and remote capabilities, and are addressing accelerating competition by China and other technologically advanced countries as a national defense priority. Both of these, like most things these days, require a dominance of Space.

Space was a mystery to most until after World War II, when the Space Race captured our imaginations and led to big-finned cars, sci-fi movies and the Jetsons. But even as we cheered the U.S. Moon landing in 1969, few understood just how interlaced our lives would become with the stars.

For as much as I have occasionally made light hearted comments about Guardians, there is absolutely no doubting the criticality of the Space Force mission. We’ve come to rely on Space for connectivity, navigation, surveillance and other defense requirements. It has become essential to all forms of science, from agriculture to zoology, and business, as well. And in the past few years it has transformed modern life, allowing instant movies and music, interactive gaming, face-to-face communication, and live streaming college football.

Technology will only continue to advance, and our reliance on Space along with it. We’re fortunate to have a dedicated Service to protect our interests up there, and I’m proud of DCMA’s increasing support as the #SpaceForce moves from standing up to standing guard.

Happy Birthday Space Force – #SemperSupra!

On Sept. 11, five members of #DCMA Special Programs climbed to the summit of Mount Pierce, New Hampshire. Part of a group of 25, the team raised a flag on the 4,311-foot peak to honor those lost in the terrorist attacks of 2001.

“We were one of 48 teams raising flags on all of New Hampshire’s 4,000-foot mountains,” said Steve Sequeira, a quality assurance specialist who’s been with DCMA for nine years, and has volunteered as group leader for this event for the past three years. “It was an honor to be part of this group, and I look forward to doing it again next year.”

Joining Sequeira from DCMA were Allison Foy, Haron Kimani, Kevin Laro and Daniel Williams.

My DCMA: Shannon Krimmer, QA specialist

"#DCMA is important to America’s warfighters because the agency is crucial to ensuring that our warfighters receive the items they need to perform their mission when needed and within cost constraints. My husband served in the Wisconsin National Guard for 22 years, and most of my colleagues, as well as many of my family members and friends, have served in the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). I take my role seriously because I have a personal connection and understanding of the sacrifices that American warfighters and their families make. It is an honor to serve those who serve our country."

BREAKING NEWS, Blackmailed: Please share, repost to everyone everywhere. Mitch McConnell being bribed by information Putin and his oligarchs shared with Donald Trump. The cargo ship owned by Mitch McConnell's in-laws "Chao" wife's family named the Ping May boarded by the Colombian Coast Guard reportedly found and seized 90 pounds of co***ne, wrong it was "90 TONS" Here is what we all should know as fact The crew members were questioned and released, as of to date no charges have been filed and the ship was returned to its owners, The Chao family. Chao family shipping business heavily involved in drug trafficking, this shared information allowed Donald Trump to own Mitch, forcing him into personal servitude, a useful idiot with global criminal exposure information holding a United States Senator hostage. How much more pain and suffering are we willing to endure from these government officials, these criminals currently running our country ?
I need your help with my research! Please take just a few minutes to take this important research that will benefit our field. My name is Daniel Singleton and I am a doctoral researcher interested in organizational psychology and public administration. More specifically, I am interested in how the public and private sectors are similar and different for contracts professionals. I completed my dissertation in 2014 looking at how human resource development environments in both sectors and now I am working on a study examining employee engagement and individual work performance characteristics among our profession. That’s where I need your help—will you please complete this survey? The higher the response rate, the better the insights we will have, which will ultimately benefit the contract management profession. I plan to leave the survey open until Sunday. The link for the survey is: https://goo.gl/forms/KCgw9UmEjH53Sh4s1 If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to let me know ([email protected]). I appreciate your help in advance!
