I Sustain This: November 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.

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.
