Announcing...the Vintage Oakleaf Club!
Announcing...the Vintage Oakleaf Club!
The Heritage Committee is beginning an initiative to compile and archive the rich historical impact that our most senior Supply Corps officers have had on our Navy and our community. Members of the committee have put together a list of our most senior Supply Corps officers called the “The Vintage Oakleaf Club”.  The committee will be contacting each of them, or their associated family members, to capture their stories. Information that will be sought includes name, rank, years of service, tours, post Navy career accomplishments, as well as photos and sea stories. The Heritage Committee will ultimately feature each member in the Oakleaf, on the Foundation website, and also the Navy Supply Corps Newsletter for the enrichment and appreciation of our entire Supply Corps community. If you know of any Supply Corps officers 90 years and older who we may be able to add to our list and contact, please contact CAPT (ret) Tiffany Schad at
