I Sustain This: July 2022 Nominees

PS Magazine’s I Sustain This campaign is designed to recognize civilian sustainers who exemplify the highest standards while maintaining equipment to meet combat readiness requirements and stay in the fight, even under the most arduous of circumstances.
This month, we had three (3) civilian sustainers nominated for this program. One was selected at random to receive the spotlight, and that individual was Bobbie S. Colbert Jr. of the TACOM Fleet Management Expansion (FMX) office, Ft Lee, VA.

Why does this person deserve recognition? The nominee maintains the operational readiness of a fleet of 200 vehicles for the training base. Mr. Colbert’s attention to detail and superior supply knowledge enables the TACOM FMX Ordnance Division at North Range to accomplish our critical objectives: zero missed training, readiness rates above 90-percent fully-mission-capable (FMC) status and adherence to funding goals. Mr. Colbert ensures that service parts are processed in Global Combat Support System-Army (GCSS-A) within two (2) hours or receipt.

Additional Comments: Additionally, he monitors the display material function within GCSS-A for errors or obsolete references and promptly notifies FMX North Range technicians. This enables them to update their reference material with the most current NSNs.
