Nominations due August 1 for DA, Chapter and Volunteer of the Year
Nominations due August 1 for DA, Chapter and Volunteer of the Year
Navy Supply Corps Foundation heroes are out there. Please help find them and ensure they are recognized for their outstanding work.  There are three NSCF national recognition programs and nominations are open to all. Nominations are “open format” and must be received no later than August 1 by letter or email to Jack Evans at   Award selections will be made at the fall Foundation Board of Directors meeting.
Distinguished Alumni - The Distinguished Alumni Program is one of the NSCF hallmark programs.  Its primary purpose is to identify and give appropriate recognition to retired and former Navy Supply Corps officers who have distinguished themselves by obtaining significant success in the public or private sector. As such, it is the intent of the Foundation to honor those former Navy Supply Corps officers, (active duty and Reserve), who credit their Supply Corps experience as a basic foundation of further professional achievements.
Volunteer of the Year Award - Each chapter should select a high impact Volunteer of the Year (Active/Reserve/Civil Service/Retired/Former) and forward a recommendation for consideration.  Chapter Presidents are encouraged to oversee nomination of the best volunteer in their chapter.  That said, nominations are open to all NSCF members and will be considered.
Chapter of the Year Award – the greatest strengths of our Foundation are the outstanding programs initiated by each chapter to further the mission of the Foundation.  Your chapter is eligible for national recognition and special resources.  All that is required is a brief, open format run-down of the chapter’s programs and their impact, both in the NSCF mission overall as well as in the local community.

At a cost of only $50, this beautifully crafted, limited edition coffee table book captures the history of the U.S. Navy's Supply Corps in a way not done before. See excerpts from the book here.

Replete with historical references, the book describes the establishment of the Supply Corps under Tench Francis and follows it to the Naval Supply Systems Command of today. In 150 pages it highlights in pictures, statistics and text, the growth and development of the U.S. Navy's supply, logistics, financial management, and contracting capability that enabled the United States Navy to operate indefinitely at sea and abroad. Through this historical context, you'll gain a new appreciation for what it means to be a U.S. Navy Supply Corps Officer.  
"Ready for Sea:  A History of the U. S. Navy Supply Corps" is a first of its kind and there are a limited number of copies.  It will be a must have for anyone that wore, or will wear, an oak leaf on their uniform.
