National Disability Employment Awareness Month

During National Disability Employment Awareness Month, we celebrate the many contributions of employees with disabilities. This year’s theme, “Don't Set Limits on Unlimited Potential,” emphasizes the boundless possibilities when barriers are removed for individuals with disabilities.

One in four American adults live with some type of disability. However, many rise beyond their limitations through resilience and determination, adding great value to the workforce. The unemployment rate for disabled adults is six percent, a historical low. 

Our supply community is committed to ensuring that all applicants have full and fair consideration for job vacancies, ensuring no discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities. We can best achieve mission success through the talents of a capable, inclusive, and diverse workforce. During this month and throughout the year, keep in mind that our team’s strength is built upon the contributions of every individual working as a cohesive unit to provide world class logistics support to warfighting, warfighters, and the future fleet.

FLASH FROM THE CHIEF: 244th United States Navy Birthday
FLASH FROM THE CHIEF: 244th United States Navy Birthday
As we celebrate our Navy birthday on 13 October, we remember there is no higher honor than to serve. This was exemplified by the sacrifices of our shipmates in the World War II Battle of Leyte Gulf, when the crews of USS Samuel B. Roberts (DE-413) and the “Taffy 3” destroyer squadron intercepted enemy forces in the face of overwhelming odds. Although the destroyers were decimated in the action, they successfully protected our troops on the beach from attack, ensuring the eventual liberation of the Philippines and victory in the Pacific theater.

For 244 years, we have grown from six wooden ships to a global force that has left tracks on every continent and throughout world history. Our humble origins could never have hinted at the monumental variety of missions we fulfill today – all with our supply community’s vital support. Whether it’s the nuts and bolts that hold our fleets together, the fuel that propels them, or the food and clothing that our Sailors depend on, Navy supply has been closely tied to every aspect of Navy’s success from our humble beginnings to our state-of-the-art forces operating around the globe today.

As we celebrate our 244th birthday, be proud of our Navy, and be proud of your role. Our actions – both past and present – show there is no higher honor than to serve.

Happy 244th birthday, Navy!
