A new commander is in charge of Defense Logistics Agency Distribution San Joaquin.

U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Susan A. Davidson gave command of the depot on Chrisman Road to Marine Col. Keith D. Reventlow on Wednesday, July 17.

Reventlow succeeds Marine Col. Adrian Burke, who had commanded the post since July 2010.

“Adrian set the standard for leadership. He exemplified professionalism,” Davidson told the crowd assembled in Warehouse 52 at the depot. “His continuous display of military values and skills are unequaled.”

Burke is retiring following an almost three-decade Marine Corps career. He thanked the military and civilian employees he commanded, calling them world-class workers.

“Serving the men and women of Team San Joaquin has been the highlight of my 29 years in Marine Corps service,” Burke said. “We serve our nation’s war fighters as if they were our family.”

Reventlow was most recently Marine Logistics Group G3 operations officer for the 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune, N.C.

He served as a company, battalion and regimental commander during his 23 years with the Marine Corps.

“I truly look forward to working with (the employees at DLA Distribution San Joaquin) in the weeks and months ahead,” Reventlow said.
