Defense Logistics Agency keeps supply of at-home COVID tests flowing

The Postal Service is probably the biggest public face for the government’s efforts to supply Americans with at-home COVID tests. But behind the scenes, it’s actually the Defense Department that’s doing a lot of the heavy lifting, specifically the Defense Logistics Agency. The agency’s DLA Distribution arm has been in charge of storing and moving those test kits to their final destinations, and tracking the supplies all the way through the process. To talk more about DoD’s role, the Federal Drive with Tom Temin spoke to four individuals from DLA Distribution: Commander Maj. Gen. Keith Reventlow, Deputy Commander Perry Knight, Col. Todd Walker, the director for current operations, and Steven Forster, a supply management specialist.
