The 2017 Admiral Stan Arthur Award Logistics Team of the Year is the NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center (FLC) Jacksonville’s Enterprise Logistics Response Team (ELRT).
The NAVSUP ELRT’s 2017 deployment to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and Key West, Florida to support disaster response operations following Hurricanes Irma and Maria, realized the combined efforts of the NAVSUP Enterprise to develop, resource, staff and test the ELRT concept.

The ELRT was composed of Sailors and civilians from FLCs Jacksonville, Puget Sound, and San Diego; NAVSUP Headquarters; and NEXCOM, who possess critical skill sets to respond to a disaster or contingency. Members provided warehousing, postal, supply support, contracting and other logistical services to base commanders, tenant commands and other mission essential personnel who remained in place following the hurricanes.
Recognition as the 2017 Admiral Stan Arthur Logistics Team of the Year is a testament to the dedication and expertise the NAVSUP Enterprise provides to identify a need, develop a plan and execute to meet emergent requirements. This is a team win, made possible by the countless contributions of the military, civilian and contractor staff who work to support the global NAVSUP mission.
NAVSUP FLC Jacksonville also won the 2017 NAVSUP Logistics Team of the Year.
