Defense Logistics Agency Supply/Logistics Instructor Gary "Shep" Shepherd stands next to an M777 howitzer at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, Sept. 15, 2020, while deployed as a universal customer account specialist assigned to DLA Support Team – Afghanistan. “I had to work several critical requisitions in order to get these guns at 100% fully mission capable,” he said. “I took a lot of pride in this particular system because these were the systems I used to operate when I was active duty.”
