DLA Goes Bananas, To The Tune Of $49 Million

From The “Too Good To Pass Up” Pile. The Defense Logistics Agency recently announced this contract award. I think it’s the company name, and the fact they are are local, that got my attention.

    If I were the owner of that company I would pitch a tent in my banana hammock. That’s a lot of money for produce delivery to east coast installations. We obviously don’t need that type of “support” out here on the left coast. Commando! Besides, 50 percent of the us produce comes from California anyways. Just need a cool name.
