Text in support of Daniel T. Graham as Employee of the Month at the Washington National Records Center, in Suitland, Md.:

Daniel “Danny” Graham was selected Employee of the Month in recognition of his years of consistently outstanding work in the Control Unit.

Daniel began his 22 year career at Washington National Records Center (WNRC) in January 1975 (he left WNRC in June 1975 and returned permanently in April 1980). Over the years Danny has become a fixture on the Control Unit where he receives new incoming accessions, shelves records, loads pallets of disposal, and periodically goes out on the truck to assist the drivers with pick-ups and deliveries to our customers. Danny performs the additional task of maintaining the Center’s trucks, forklifts and primemovers; ensuring they are in operating condition. He is especially good in handling the various types of paperwork associated with the transfer and delivery of federal government records and always makes sure the right copy gets to the right people.

Born and raised in Washington, DC, Danny is a lifelong resident of Anacostia. His favorite television show is JAG and he enjoys watching movies despite the fact that the last movie he saw in an actual movie theater was “Saturday Night Fever” in 1978. Danny is an active member of the Free And Accepted Masons (F.A.A.M.) and regularly attends Capital Hill United Methodist Church. His hobbies include duck pin bowling, listening to all types of music and rooting for his beloved Redskins. While Danny confesses to not living life on the wild side, he certainly is not bashful. One longtime coworker said, “If you don’t have all day to listen, don’t ask Danny a question.” To say Danny does things a little differently would be an understatement. Beginning with Operation Dessert Storm, Danny has cut away a 1/2 inch from his sideburns for every war the U.S. has been involved. Danny says he has the clippers ready if the U.S. decides to attack Iraq. When providing information for this write up Danny wanted to make sure we informed all the ladies that he is single and available. —David Morton
