News: DCMA AIMO Greenville honors veterans
GREENVILLE, Texas - While some employees celebrated Veterans Day and returned to work, employees at the Defense Contract Management Agency Aircraft Integrated Maintenance Operations office here continued the celebration of veterans as they honored them for more than a week.
Employees brought in veteran photos, news articles and memorabilia related to their own lives for a display on the main office aisle wall. It featured pictures of friends, family and employees when they were on active duty.
As employees passed the display, conversations often turned to reminiscing about service to country with memorabilia that dated as far back as 1918, and as recent as last year.
Many photos and memorabilia attracted attention from employees and visitors.
One photo had a special historical significance. Sherie Adams, DCMA AIMO Greenville quality assurance specialist, provided a photo of her father, Andy Adams, a Navy diver. Adams was in the same 1954 dive class as Carl Brashear, the first African-American to attend and graduate from the U.S. Navy Salvage Diving School and who later retired as a master chief petty officer and master diver.
The display included photos from David Herda, a DCMA AIMO Greenville supply chain manager. Herda sent photos of himself and his two brothers when they were young boys dressed in their Navy costumes in 1953 and of all three as adults on active duty in 1967. The Herdas followed in the footsteps of their father who served in the Navy.
The display offered employees the opportunity to participate in honoring veterans related to their own lives and their service to country.
