Vice Director of Defense Information Systems Agency’s Operations and Infrastructure Center Larry Klooster Retires

Klooster came to DISA in 2010. For his first job at the agency, he was sent to Afghanistan to help lead the development of the country’s infrastructure.

Larry Klooster, vice director of Defense Information Systems Agency’s Operations and Infrastructure Center, closed out his career during a retirement ceremony Aug. 2.

For the last 46 years, Klooster has served the United States from just about every angle. Starting with the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, Klooster spent 29 years in the Army, then five in industry, and the last 12 as a civilian with DISA.

“It’s been fun being at DISA and I’ve had a great time,” said Klooster, a kid from a blue-collar family who joined the Army to get a free education. “DISA employees have a unique opportunity because the impact you can have on operations at the tactical and strategic level is incredible.”

Klooster came to DISA in 2010. For his first job at the agency, he was sent to Afghanistan to help lead the development of the country’s infrastructure. There, he served as the senior telecommunications advisor on the International Security Forces Afghanistan staff.
