"Mr. DePoortere was brought on board to be the Air Force District of Washington's CBRN analyst. I worked with Mr. DePoortere for just over a year as his direct supervisor. During this period, he assisted our agency with increasing the overall on-hand inventory and training levels for our CBRN response teams from 30% to nearly 100%. Being very knowledgeable in the CBRN field, he worked closely with our two medical units to develop new training scenarios to ensure our teams were ready for any contingency. I always found Mr. DePoortere to be willing to take on any challenge or project, and I was satisfied with his work results"
