Lt. Gen. Andy Busch, former director of the Defense Logistics Agency, formally concluded his 38-year military career during a ceremony held Thursday at Fort Belvoir in Virginia.
The U.S. Air Force veteran led the development of DLA’s expeditionary capacity during his tenure as DLA director with the creation of the Global Response Force Rapid Deployment Teams that performed various disaster relief operations, the agency said Thursday.
He helped foster workforce resiliency via an awareness campaign as well as implemented DLA’s first sexual assault prevention and reporting program.
Busch also managed the National Defense Stockpile, which includes an international network of 25 distribution centers, as well as the agency’s process for reverse logistics.
His Air Force career includes various roles within the Air Force Materiel Command, Defense Supply Center Richmond, 3rd Equipment Maintenance Squadron, 13th Fighter Squadron, 402nd Maintenance Wing, 432nd Component Repair Squadron, 474th Tactical Fighter Wing and the 4450th Tactical Group.
Maj. Gen. Darrell Williams, commanding general of the Army Combined Arms Support Command and the Sustainment Center of Excellence at Fort Lee, was confirmed by the Senate in May to serve as the next DLA director.
