A Word about Fuels
As the Officer in Charge of the NAVSUP Naval Petroleum Office, I am thrilled at this opportunity to highlight the all-important topic of fuel for discussion with the Supply Corps community. Those officers among us who carry the 1307 subspecialty and proudly call ourselves “fuelies” know the critical importance of our commodity. Fuel is truly the lifeblood of the full range of Department of Defense (DoD) capabilities, and, as such, must be available on specification, on demand, on time, every time. In meeting this highest of standards, we work hand-in-hand with a dedicated team of Sailors, civil servants and contractors to deliver fuel to every corner of the world, ashore and afloat.
