Fast Service From Early Bird
After 35 and a half years in the Marine Corps, retired Master Gunnery Sergeant Joseph Royak knows the early bird gets the worm – or in this case, the battery.
When he arrived early to Interstate Batteries® of Tacoma Friday, July 13, Warehouse Manager Becky Lunday was the only person around. But that didn’t stop her from finding a pair of batteries for Joseph’s project.
“She was great. I know she was busy,” Joseph said, explaining that Becky had to look up a battery that would fit the Army version of a M35A2 Deuce, a military cargo truck Joseph is converting to the Marine version. All the while, Becky was courteous and professional.
“And she was fast,” he said.
In a thank-you email to Interstate Batteries, Joseph wrote “What I want to convey to you is what a gem of an employee you have in Becky.” With the starting batteries, he hopes to be able to drive his Interstate-powered M35A2 in the next Veterans Day parade.
“Having spent 35+ years in the Marine Corps, I know the importance of ‘attaboys,’ and Becky deserves one.”
