David F. Baucom the director of the U.S. Central Command Deployment and Distribution Operations Center and commander of the Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support. “There is not a problem anywhere on the deck plates of a ship or in the sand dunes of the desert that cannot be solved by a chief petty officer, that’s the value the chief petty officer offers to our Navy.” (U.S. Army Photo by Army Staff Sgt.
