Colonel Provancha remarked, “VSE Corporation operates as Letterkenny Army Depot’s prime contractor in support of the Route Clearance Vehicle Modernization Program located in Kuwait. Through VSE’s efforts, Letterkenny Army Depot has been able to improve their performance by reducing man hours and customer wait time while maintaining quality. VSE has had less than 2% deviation of inventory and zero loss of accountability. Thanks to the great efforts of everyone at LEAD Forward, our operation has become the benchmark for future operations. What we have accomplished has made a huge impact on many missions accomplished by the Nation’s Warfighters.”
VSE CEO Maurice “Mo” Gauthier accepted the award at the event. “I am honored to accept this award on behalf of the men and women of VSE. We are proud to be a member of the Letterkenny family of industry partners. Working shoulder to shoulder in Kuwait, the Letterkenny onsite leadership and VSE’s team of professionals are returning worn and damaged combat vehicles back to combat ready status for our Nation’s Warfighters.” said Gauthier. “We thank Colonel Provencha for her leadership in a difficult and demanding work environment. We will continue to earn her confidence as an Industry Partner and member of the Letterkenny Depot Forward Team. We are honored that VSE is entrusted to provide the prime contractor support.”
