Marine Col. Keith D. Reventlow, commander of DLA Distribution San Joaquin, is the principal speaker at this year’s Veterans Day observance.

The program begins at 10 a.m. Nov. 11 at the Tracy War Memorial on East Ninth Street in the Tracy Civic Center.

Reventlow took over as commander of the Tracy-based Defense Logistics Agency military supply depot in July, succeeding Marine Col. Adrian Burke, who retired.

A native of New Rochelle, N.Y., Reventlow was raised in Newtown, Conn., and graduated from Western Connecticut State University with a bachelor’s degree in political science.

He earned his Marine commission through the Platoon Leaders Course and has served as commander on the company, battalion and regimental level.

Reventlow was deputy senior adviser of the 1st Iraqi Division in Habbaniyah, Iraq, and logistics officer for the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit and for the 6th Marine Regiment.

Before coming to DLA Distribution San Joaquin, Reventlow was the 2nd Marine Logistics Group G3 operations officer for the II Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune, N.C. He wears the Bronze Star and Combat Action Ribbon.

During the Nov. 11 Veterans Day observance, Reventlow will be introduced by John Treantos, president of the Tracy War Memorial Association which is sponsoring the event.

A proclamation from the Tracy City Council will be presented, and veterans of five wars will place a wreath in front of the Tracy War Memorial monument that carries the names of those who have died in service to their country.

For information: John Treantos, 832-8330
