Navy Capt. Paul Tully, who took over command of Defense Depot Ogden in August 1986, will leave Utah to become deputy director for physical distribution at Naval Supply Systems Headquarters.
Tully said his successor is Navy Capt. Charles David Correll, who now is director of the Weapons Systems Supply Group at the Navy Ships Parts Control Center in Mechanicsburg, Pa.The date of the command change is not set, but Tully said it likely will take place in early summer when his position in Washington, D.C., opens.
The change of command is part of the normal rotation of commanders within the Defense Logistics Agency, of which DDO is a part, said DLA spokesman Earl Nichols.
DDO is one of six DLA depots that receives, stores, maintains and distributes supplies to the military branches. Supplies include electronics, clothes, fuel and chemicals.
The depot's primary responsibility is to 13 Western states and the Pacific area. More than 750,000 items worth $1.2 billion are at the site northwest of Ogden.
