HARRISBURG - Navy Petty Officer Third Class Tyler A. Foura participated in Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Disposition Services second annual Overseas Contingency Operations Readiness Training exercise. This year's iteration, which consisted of the mostly hands-on training at various Michigan military installations, paired more than 50 DLA military reservists and members of the agency's Civilian Expeditionary Workforce to prepare expeditionary units capable of rapidly deploying, fully constructing work sites and starting property receipt in less than 100 hours - at almost any location in the world. As it relates to this training, Foura will be deploying to Afghanistan for DLA this summer.

Foura is currently serving as Logistics Specialist with DLA Distribution, Naval Operations Support Center, Harrisburg.

Foura is a son of Douglas Foura and Heidi Ferguson, of Sunbury.

He is a 2007 graduate of Shikellamy High School, Sunbury. He earned an master's degree in 2013 from Bloomsburg University, Bloomsburg.
