Team Supply,

Once again, it is great to see a supply community Sailor named Sailor of the Year. Congratulations Chief Logistics Specialist (AW/SW) Sindy Johnson for becoming 2018 U.S. Navy Shore Sailor of the Year. Chief Johnson served at Fleet Readiness Center Southwest and was meritoriously promoted to chief petty officer.

In this edition of the newsletter, we take a look at the quality-of-life services provided to Sailors, their families, and our retirees through services provided by the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM). NEXCOM has six primary business lines: Navy Exchange (NEX) Retail Stores and Services, Ship’s Store Program, Uniform Program Management Office, Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility (NCTRF), Navy Lodge Program, and Telecommunications Program Office.

We continue the conversation of maritime logistics with Rear Adm. Peter Stamatopoulos’ “Maritime Logistics in a Changing Environment” to improve our understanding of naval logistics and the many roles within the lines of effort that each of us are connected to in support of increasing lethality.

Lastly, we provide an update on the NAVSUP Enterprise’s latest reform efforts.

I recently had the pleasure and honor to visit our supply enlisted and sailors at the White House, Vice President’s Quarters, the Pentagon, and those serving in the 7th Fleet area of responsibility, who conducted Supply Enlisted Roadshows with our enlisted community manager/detailer team. My message to all of them, and their leadership, is for Sailors to establish a relationship with subject matter experts from both groups to ensure that they stay connected to the ever-changing environment where career opportunities are plentiful for those who are up-to-date regarding the current business rules of community management and detailing.

Lead with character and competence!

Summer 2019
