    More than 390 military officers, faculty, retirees and guests of the Fort Leavenworth Command and General Staff College gathered for the 19th annual Sustainment Spring Formal May 3 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Kansas City International Airport Hotel in Kansas City, Mo.
    The event, hosted by Col. Robert A. Law III, director for the Department of Logistics and Resource Operations, featured guest speaker, Maj. Gen. Stephen E. Farmen, commanding general of the Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command.
    “We must be prepared for America’s worst day,” Farmen told attendees.
    Farmen encouraged the audience to be “ship builders” by building relationships, partnerships and friendships through trust, teamwork, transparency and total approach. He advised the attendees to prepare themselves, through the above basic principles, for the current complex asymmetrical operating environment.
    Also present was Leavenworth historian John Reichley’s display that included military uniforms and artifacts from nearly two centuries. The Leavenworth High School Junior ROTC color guard conducted the posting and retiring of the colors.
    The annual formal includes all of the sustainment branches and symbolizes the unity within the sustainment community. It is a time to celebrate the past and look forward to the future.
    The DLRO, which educates, trains and develops officers in the art and science of sustainment and force management for military operations across unified land operations, thanks all of the volunteers that made the event possible.
