Lawrence Dowsing
200530-N-AC165-0003 NORFOLK, Va. (May. 30, 2020) Lawrence Dowsing, 63, is one of Military Sealift Command Atlantic’s mission critical employees serving during the COVID-19 pandemic that has swept the nation in 2020. For the past four years, he has served as a Marine Transportation Specialist, alongside his two MTS teammates, Dean Doolittle and Scott Denney, at MSCLANT’s Jacksonville (JAX) port office in Florida, located at the Marine Corps Supply Facility, which supports MSCLANT’s mission to provide ocean transportation of equipment, fuel, supplies and ammunition in the Eastern Atlantic to sustain US forces worldwide. The office also supports Mayport and Mobile Navy bases and the Navy Fuel Depot in Florida. Hailing from Holly Springs, Miss., he retired in 1997, after 23 years of service with the Marines at the rank of master sergeant. He next worked at the Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Center in Illinois before joining MSC 13 years ago, four of which have been at JAX as an MTS. Dowsing said he continues to serve at JAX because he enjoys working in transportation logistics.
