Senior leaders from Installation Management Command Sustainment Directorate visited the Detroit Arsenal January 30 as part of their annual plan to visit garrisons and senior installation commanders.

Davis D. Tindoll, Jr., director of Sustainment Directorate, and Sustainment Directorate’s Command Sgt. Major Tamisha Love, spent time getting briefings about future plans at the arsenal, met with garrison and installation leadership and set aside time for personal mentoring and visiting the child development center.

Tindoll met with several garrison teammates during the mentoring sessions. The 15-minute sessions gave people an opportunity to share their past experiences, as well as career goals during the mentoring sessions.

“These sessions can be very useful,” said Bill Paling, acting deputy garrison manager for the U.S. Army Garrison – Detroit Arsenal. “I shared some of my goals with Mr. Tindoll several years ago during a one-on-one mentoring session and he remembered what we had talked about and reached out to me for several career-broadening opportunities during the next few years. It was a great opportunity to increase my skills and expand my career opportunities.”

“I’m always impressed with the people I get to sit down and talk with during these mentoring sessions,” said Tindoll. “We have some of the best people in IMCOM and it shows in the support they provide to the installation and to the Soldiers we ultimately support.”

“We really look forward to these visits,” said Carrie Mead, garrison manager for the U.S. Army Garrison – Detroit Arsenal. “It gives us a chance to show off our great programs and our amazing people. It also gives us a chance to share what some of the challenges are we face that are specific to our location like the snow we got during this visit.”

Tindoll also took the opportunity to recognize several garrison employees with Sustainment Directorate Coins. “Recognizing outstanding individuals during installation visits like this is one of the best parts of the job,” said Tindoll.
