“As we go through this, we discover some things that sometimes take us by surprise. Or we discover things that would compel us to take some actions that are not necessarily financial in nature,”  Horlander said. “So I’m lucky because I’m partnered with Gen. Perna, who is in the Army Material Command. Much of what we do is we spend our money in the sustainment and the logistics areas, so he and I are side by side throughout the entire charge. He has identified and seen some things as we are looking at our financials, he will see things that have implications in logistical operations, that prompts him to take action.”
