Lieutenant General Darrell K. Williams Relinquishes Command
07/02/2020 - #1

HAMPTON, Va. (July 2, 2020) - Hamptonians: LTG Darrell K. Williams, Class of 1983, will leave Command of the Defense Logistics Agency on July 8th (see Facebook Live-Virtual Invitation below).  LTG Williams has led the Agency during one of the most challenging times in its history, having supported disaster operations nationally and internationally.  The magnitude of these operations have been so profound and the lives saved through the leadership he has demonstrated was remarkable.  Hamptonians should be proud of LTG Williams' achievements, but we must also recognize his wife, Myra, for her sacrifices during this assignment and all of the previous leadership challenges they have faced TOGETHER. God bless them as they start a new chapter in their lives.
