I Sustain This: December 2023 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 December 2023, we had two civilian sustainers nominated for this program: Mr. Bob Engstrom, an AMC logistics assistance representative (LAR) specializing in TACOM equipment at Fort Drum, NY; and Mr. Joey Baza, a communications/electronics mechanic with the 9th Mission Support Command, Dydasco Army Reserve Center, Guam.
