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.
For November, we had one civilian sustainer nominated for this program. That individual was Benjamin Engelson of the TACOM Fleet Management Expansion (FMX) office, North Range, Ft Lee, VA.
Why does this person deserve recognition?
