Welcome Veterans!

I’m Dan Summitt from the Delgado Logistics Program.   As a veteran, I made the same transition from military to civilian life that you are now experiencing and utilized the GI Bill for my educational expenses. This website and the courses in this program are designed and delivered to assist your transition to a logistics career through training and orientation to career options and employers in Louisiana. The goal of this program is to prepare you for a successful career in logistics. All courses are delivered online. Our area of concentration is the New Orleans metro region and the River Parishes. There are many sectors of the logistics industry and a goal of this website is to provide you with an understanding of your options for building a career. In the Student Section of this website there are current economic studies of the industry that will assist your search for opportunities. There is information about local companies and their websites which can provide you with an understanding of their operations and career opportunities. This list will continue to grow as I recruit employers to post their company information. The Delgado Logistics Student Network located on this website is a means of networking online with Delgado logistics students and alumni.

As you progress through your enrollment process and secure your VA educational benefits, if you experience problems, have questions or have suggestions for improving this program, please send me an e-mail through this link. I will help. You will be helping yourself and your e-mails will help build this program.

Good luck and do not give up. You can do this and it is worth the effort.
