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 one civilian sustainer nominated for this program. That individual was Greg Morris, AMC Armament Logistics Assistance Representative (LAR), Fort Knox, KY, on rotation to Camp Buehring, Kuwait.
Explain how you came to know/observe the nominee's actions
AMC Armament LAR
Fort Knox, KY (on rotation to Camp Buehring)
Nominated by: CW2 Gabriel E. Abreu, 783rd Support Maintenance Co., PRARNG
: During the 783rd SMC 2022 rotation to Camp Buehring, Kuwait, Mr. Morris came to our maintenance area and introduced himself. Right after, he offered to provide our small arms repairers with a full maintenance course on the 120mm mortar, since an operational unit was having challenges with the system. Mr. Morris coordinated a maintenance plan that included our unit's maintainers and the other unit's operators to provide services, which brought the owning unit's mortars to a 100% readiness. The added bonus was that our maintainers gained the necessary skills to perform the required task for that weapon system.
Explain why this individual merits recognition
: Mr. Morris exemplifies the dedication and devotion required to oversee, adapt and overcome logistics situations and find capable solutions in order to obtain positive results. Mr. Morris' knowledge and willingness to share his expertise is greatly appreciated from all the soldiers of the 783rd SMC Armament Section.
