Welcome Message to the NAVSUP Enterprise and Supply Corps
It is an honor and humbling occasion to return to Mechanicsburg and serve as Commander, NAVSUP and 48th Chief of Supply Corps. I am excited for the opportunity to work with the team of dedicated professionals in the NAVSUP Enterprise, the Navy Supply Corps, and our supply community. Together, we will continue the hard work of those who have gone before us to ensure our logistics community effectively serves the fleet and improves warfighter sustainment.
As we help build the Navy the Nation needs, NAVSUP has a key role in supporting improved readiness and increased lethality by ensuring sustainment of our military might. We will continue NAVSUP's reform and modernization efforts, focused on improving our business processes to increase the speed of support and to rally with other key players in Navy sustainment. Our processes must achieve best value solutions, while balancing cost and performance from requirements determination to the last tactical mile. Every year, we will improve the capability of our naval and joint forces, make progress on audit, and devise solutions in the industrial mission set to accelerate the return of ships and aircraft to the fleet.
As we continue to evolve logistics support, a central priority for me is taking care of our diverse and mighty Navy supply logistics team around the globe with the right culture, right training, and right focus. We will continue to promote a culture of character and competence and we will ensure our people are poised to support our critical mission as we will build to new levels of performance.
We must and will adapt to the evolving landscape of the competition with a relentless commitment to responsiveness, reliability, and innovation. Together, we will always be ready to serve, ready to sustain the fight, and “Ready for Sea.”

Eighty-five students were chosen to receive scholarships from the Navy Supply Corps Foundation for the 2018-2019 school year. Have you ever wondered how these awards make a difference for the children and grandchildren of Navy Supply Corps officers and enlisted personnel who received them? The scholarship recipients were given the opportunity to submit a video to let us know what the awards mean to them. These are all video "selfies" (60 seconds or less) describing how they felt getting this help. Check them out HERE!
