Specifically, he has played an instrumental role on the Multi-Domain Operation (MDO) TWV project, and his management of the TWV Study calendar and flawless coordination of meetings at all levels: AO, Council of Colonels, HQDA, and Senior Leadership has established him as a trusted agent of the Sustainment Division (SD).
