NAVSUP OFFICE OF CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS
The Navy Supply Corps Captain (Select) Training Symposium was held in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, 3-5 November. Chief of Supply Corps Rear Adm. Jonathan Yuen opened and closed the symposium with words the officers could put into practice upon return to their commands. Briefs included the Naval Supply Systems Command Strategic Guidance, communications, Office of Personnel’s Roadshow, logistics, husbanding, ethics and many more topics that would be of great use in their future career moves. Vice Adm. Brown also provided his view on leadership in a Joint environment.
Attendees of the symposium had the opportunity to visit the Milton Hershey School. Milton and Catherine Hershey established the school in 1909 to provide a positive, structured home-life year-round to help children gain the skills to be successful in all aspects of life. The visit included a tour of the Founders Hall Rotunda, an overview of Milton Hershey School, a video about the life at Milton Hershey School, a campus tour, and a student panel discussion. The student panel discussion provided the opportunity for symposium attendees to have an open dialogue with students while offering the students the exposure to military leadership views. The visit to Milton Hershey School reinforced the importance of community service and "Servant's Heart", for these officers.
