    Soldiers with the 226th Composite Supply Company, 87th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 3rd Infantry Division, held their first class on the turn-in process at the Supply Support Activity (SSA) on Ft. Stewart, Ga. on Dec. 13, 2018. The purpose of the class was to teach Soldiers how to prevent errors during equipment turn in.
    “The purpose of this class is to better inform all of the customers we have on how to properly make turn-ins and that will contribute to the better success of missions,” said Sgt. Richard Galashaw, an automated logistical specialist with 226th CSC. “Successfully turning in all of their items that they no longer need or are recoverable bring their units more money.”
    Galashaw said the SSA typically serves seven or eight customers a day who normally turn in 20 to 30 items per person. They bring in tires, vehicles, weapons, masks and other pieces of military equipment.
    Soldiers went through the steps the SSA personnel go through when inspecting equipment. They checked service tags that identify the item and compared it to a military form similar to a receipt that shows all of the items that were expected to be given to the SSA.
    “We were going through a phase when we were getting a lot of false transactions,” said Galashaw. “Our chief thought it would be a good idea to educate Soldiers so that they have the tools they need to successfully complete their turn-in process.”
    “I was doing sergeant’s time training internally and I decided that I wanted that to be open to all 235 customers that we have, so now it’s open to the entire division,” said Warrant Officer 1 Cindyannette Rojas, the accountable officer with 226th CSC. “Whoever we support, they are welcome to come when we do the classes every other week.”
