Congratulations to Florida Department of Military Affairs employee Dawn Williams for achieving a 25 year employment milestone as an employee with the State of Florida. 

She currently works at the Florida National Guard headquarters in St. Augustine as the Assistant Purchasing Director.  Her duties include purchasing for various programs throughout the organization, including supporting state active duty missions when the Florida National Guard is mobilized for these domestic operations. 

Williams started originally with the State of Florida, June 6, 1986, at The Florida School for the Deaf and Blind.  Her mission at the Dept. of Military Affairs started December 9, 1990, with the State Quartermaster. 

 “It was an honor to have Maj. Gen. Titshaw present the award and recognize my service,” commented Williams. 

 When asked what significant changes she has observed during these 25 years, Williams mentioned automation.

 Williams receives satisfaction in her job knowing she directly supports the Soldiers and Airmen of the Florida National Guard, as well as the employees of the Dept. of Military Affairs.  “The purchasing that I do helps them run their programs. It could be helping an armory get carpet for their facility, supporting the counterdrug program with purchases they need to continue operating their programs efficiently, or helping meet the needs of the employees at the St. Francis Barracks, (where the Guard’s state headquarters is located in St. Augustine).  I also support state active duty missions by processing the purchases that are made in the field with the help of many other State Quartermaster personnel.”   

 The Dept. of Military Affairs and Florida National Guard appreciate the dedicated service of Dawn Williams.
