Every year on May 1st, Bahrain celebrates International Labor Day, a public holiday where the Kingdom of Bahrain recognizes workers from several different industries, companies and institutions for their contributions. This year, four DynCorp International team members working in support of the U.S. Air Force War Reserve Materiel (WRM) program were honored for their outstanding performance in a special ceremony hosted by His Majesty King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa.
DI team members Abbas Ali Faraj, warehouseman, Ali E. Ahmed, shop floor parts clerk, Hassan A.H. Khamis, freight traffic assistant and Hasan A.H. Mahdi, fuels inspector, all Bahraini nationals, were among those selected for the recognition.
“Abbas, Ali, Hassan and Hasan have supported critical work for the WRM program and truly exemplify the DI core value: We Perform,” said Bruno Eddy, DynCorp International program director. “They have demonstrated their commitment and dedication to ensure that all assets are operational prior to being deployed to our troops.”
