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 June 2023, we had one civilian sustainer nominated for this program: Jarrod Maxwell, a ManTech contractor who supports the 71st Ordnance Group (EOD), Fort Carson, CO.
Why does this person deserve recognition?
71st Ordnance Group (EOD)
Ft Carson, CO
Nominated by: MSG Eric Vallejos
I work with Jarrod everyday as the unit's senior maintenance supervisor. Jarrod goes above and beyond to help anyone and everyone. He completes his daily tasks, then seeks areas in the workplace to improve. He routinely submits work orders to improve the facility, without hesitation. Further, he assists the seven (7) ManTech mechanics with troubleshooting and fixing equipment. He even assists people outside of the organization by training them on GCSS-Army or teaching Army procedures.
Jarrod has the most initiative of anyone I've met in 21 years in the Army. He is an asset to the EOD community, and his work ethic is unmatched.
