She’s responsible for coordinating work orders , translating documents and correspondence , preparing standard operating procedures , tracking actions and taskers , preparing after action reports and making recommendations , and a multitude of other administrative tasks and duties at LRC Italy . Name: Graziella Dalle Mese Job title: Logistics Operations Support Assistant Assigned: Logistics Readiness Center Italy , 405th Army Field Support Brigade Location: Vicenza , Italy Experience: I’ve been working at LRC Italy for three years . Before coming to LRC Italy , I was at the Criminal Investigation Division office here in Vicenza working as a criminal investigator and interpreter for over 17 years . My first job with the U . S . Army in Italy was actually with the Directorate of Engineering and Housing in 1987 , which is now called the Directorate of Public Works , U . S . Army Garrison Italy . In total , I have about 35 years of service with the Army , and I’m planning to retire within the next year . Hometown: Altavilla Vicentina , Italy Family: I’ve been married to my husband , Livio Tezze , for about 13 years . I have a son named Jeffrey Kiffer who is 37; a granddaughter , Sofia , who is almost 18; and a grandson , John , who is 6 . Graziella Dalle Mese and one of her coworkers at Logistics Readiness Center Italy , Valter Florinaschi , share a laugh at work . The LRC Italy logistics operations support assistant , 405th Army Field Support Brigade , is planning to retire within the next year . She said she’ll miss all of the people she’s worked with over the years but will cherish the memories . Q: Can you explain what your duties are at LRC Italy A: At LRC Italy I do a little bit of everything . I coordinate work orders for the organization . I’m the building manager and the key control officer . I organize events for LRC Italy . I translate documents and correspondence . I perform quality control reviews on documents and correspondence . I prepare standard operating procedures . I coordinate with local units , tenant organizations and activities . I coordinate with the LRC Italy division chiefs , and I track division actions and taskers . I prepare after action reports and make recommendations . I’m the alternate Defense Travel System manager for LRC Italy . I do the daily personnel status report for higher headquarters , and I perform a multitude of other administrative tasks and duties at LRC Italy . Q: Why is the mission at LRC Italy so important A: Well , we support everybody . We support the Soldiers , mainly , but we also support all the civilian employees , family members and the entire community . From the time they arrive until the time they leave , we provide them with support , whether that’s clothing issue facility operations , food service management , supplies and services , personal property and household goods , transportation , maintenance , and more . It’s very important what we do on a daily basis . I don’t think the community here at USAG Italy would be able to fully operate and do their jobs if not for LRC Italy and all that we provide . Q: What do you enjoy about your job , and what motivates you A: It’s hard to answer this question in just a few words . I’ll start by saying that I was previously married to an American , and I worked in the U . S . for about six years as a legal secretary very early in my adult life . It was my very first full - time job , and this was my introduction to American culture and my first opportunity to work with Americans . Actually , I have very little Italian work experience . Besides working at a couple of jobs here and there in Italy during the summers while I was in school , working for the U . S . Army is what I’ve done my entire life . I’ve always been treated well – with dignity , fairness and respect – and I’ve really enjoyed it . I’ve met a lot of interesting and nice people . To this day , I’m still in touch with many people I worked with over the years – many supervisors and colleagues . I’ve had a lot of good opportunities , and I’m grateful for everything . When I retire soon , I’ll certainly miss all of the people , but I’ll take with me many good memories , which I’ll cherish and share with my grandchildren . And we’ll keep in touch .
