The Theater Aviation Sustainment Manager – OCONUS (TASM-O) program at Camp Bondsteel, Kosovo, recently experienced a microburst wind storm that damaged the aircraft hangar. The DynCorp International (DI) team was quick to respond to this dangerous situation and functioned as partners with the Army unit in Kosovo, assessing and mitigating the damage to the hangar, personnel, and the aircraft.
“The team really pulled together to help,” said Bynum Harstin, DI’s Camp Bondsteel site lead. “It’s obvious they are appreciated – on July 1, Commander Muennich and staff presented team members with Certificates of Appreciation and a U.S. flag that had been flown over Camp Bondsteel in our honor.”
The certificates thanked the team for their efforts and impact above and beyond the standard, not only in maintaining aircraft, but in all interactions with Task Force Aviation personnel; for providing exceptional aircraft maintenance and their dedication to the soldiers, NCOs and officers; and, for the accomplishments during the storm rotation, which were above the best.
“We have a really great team in Kosovo and our other TASM-O sites,” said Bubba White, Army Field Maintenance Contract Field Teams (AFM/CFT) director. “They are truly dedicated in support of the mission.”
On the TASM-O program, DI provides Army Aviation field and sustainment level maintenance services, including RESET restorative maintenance, throughout the TASM-O region to include worksites at Camp Humphreys, South Korea; Illesheim Army Airfield, Germany; Landstuhl Army Airfield, Germany; Wiesbaden Army Airfield, Germany; Hohenfels Army Airfield, Germany; Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras; North/South Camp, Sinai, Egypt; and Camp Bondsteel, Kosovo.
