Letter of Appreciation and Command Coin for
Ms. Tanya Rockett, Fleet Locator and DODAAC custodian

As Group Commander of the Navy Expeditionary Logistics Support Group Forward (NAVELSG FWD), I would like to thank Ms. Tanya Rockett for her efforts in expediting the process to create a Deployable DODAAC for NAVELSG FWD, located at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait. Prior to Ms. Rockett's actions, the DODDAC for NAVELSG FWD did not allow access to DRMO for the purpose of receiving reutilized materials. Upon being notified by the NAVELSG FWD Supply Officer, Ms. Rockett worked to create a proper receiving address for NAVELSG to include its operations in the CENTCOM Area of Operations. This made it possible for NAVELSG FWD to save thousands of dollars in expenditures, by reutilizing refurbished materials in theater vice buying new materials. This is crucial in a fiscally austere environment where creative logistics acquisition is necessary for a unit to function. Ms. Rockett's swift action and personal attention to detail have been of great assistance to the current deployed rotation and the subsequent rotations to follow.

Please present her with this letter of appreciation and Command Coin for excellence as a token of our thanks for your efforts.
