​Greetings from Robins AFB and Middle Georgia. Jonathan "Scott" Kenton from C-17 Program Office. Between my active duty and civil service time, I will celebrate my 30th year in the logistics business later this year. I was an aircraft maitainer when I "worked" for a living. The past 11 years I've served as an LCL/Logistics Manager at Wright Patterson and Robins AFB for the C-17 Division focusing on Product Support/Sustainment. Our PBL contract with Boeing has provided an opportunity to manage many projects and contract requirements from concept to award. As a result, I am heavily invovled in all 12 IPSEs. I am currently the logistics lead for our ongoing BCA, CBM+ and follow-on sustainment contract. I love my job! In fact, I still can't believe they pay me to do this. Thanks to Leesa amd Bill for providing the LCL troops a place share information and stay current on LCL matters.

Greetings from Dayton, OH!  I am a Senior Associate for Guidehouse LLP and I've been with the company for almost 1
year working out of the Beavercreek, OH, office.  Prior to that, I spent 26 years in the USAF as an Aircraft Armament
Systems Specialist, having loaded and maintained the weapons systems of A-10s, F-16s, and F-15Es.  My last seven
years in the Air Force was spent as the Command Logistics Manager, Directorate of Plans, Programs, and Requirements,
HQ Air Combat Command, Langley AFB, VA. 

While stationed in Virginia, I was able to finish a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics through Embry-Riddle Aeronautical
University, as well as an MBA in Logistics through Trident University International.  Additionally, one of the requirments
for the position at HQ ACC was Life-cycle Logistician Level II certification; I figured, why stop there and finished the Level
III certification.  

Since coming to Guidehouse, I have worked a Deactivation, Demilitarization, and Disposal Plan for the C-130H/J,
WC-130H/J, and LC-130H Review and Rewrite as part of the C-130 Document Study contract, as well as the C-130H
Avionics Modernization Program Automatic Dependent Surveillance -Broadcast aircraft modification contract.  

I look forward to sharing with and learning from the Life-cycle Logistics Community.  Please feel free to reach me at:

Hello.  I am currently working in the FMS Special Program Office for ACMI (P5) pods at Hill AFB, UT.  I have 22+ years of active duty avionics experience (F-16s) and retired in 2014.  I joined Civil Service in 2015 as an Equipment Specialist in another SPO.  I recently accepted a promotion into this 346 position in November of 2018.  I am enjoying the work and am wrapping my head around things now and hope to be filling a PM position in the near future.  But, for now, I will be the best I can be.  I look forward to learning and sharing with the community.
