Congratulations to 2020 NSCF Distinguished Alumni RADM (ret) Edward K. "Ted" Walker, Jr. ~ Watch the recorded Virtual Ceremony ONLINE NOW!
Congratulations to our newest 2020 Navy Supply Corps Foundation Distinguished Alumni RADM (ret) Edward K. "Ted" Walker, Jr., inducted by way of a virtual ceremony in November 2020. With the continued challenges of the pandemic, a recorded online ceremony offered a great opportunity to honor RADM Walker in a timely manner. RADM Walker enjoyed a long and successful career in the Supply Corps, culminating as the 35th Chief of Supply Corps. He transitioned out of the Navy and continued his success while serving as President and CEO of the U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation and Chairman of the Vinson Hall Retirement Corporation. 

The Foundation's Distinguished Alumni ceremony celebrated RADM Walker’s achievements during a recorded virtual ceremony, hosted by Foundation Chair RADM (ret) Mike Lyden, with Guest Speaker VADM (ret) Edward M. Straw, former Commander Defense Logistics Agency, and special guests: Foundation Executive Director CAPT (ret) Daniel Pionk, and Distinguished Alumni Committee Chair and Foundation Distinguished Alumni CAPT (ret) Bud Schiff. 

The ceremony honoring RADM Walker can be viewed on the NSCF YouTube channel, through the link provided below:

Why are Job Fairs Important to Attend When Transitioning?
Why are Job Fairs Important to Attend When Transitioning?
Job Fairs are an opportunity for businesses to find qualified candidates and for job seekers to interview with many companies in a brief period of time. With resume in hand, a well-prepared candidate can maximize time spent job searching, as well as improve interview skills, by attending virtual job fairs. While a job offer is not likely to occur on site, networking will. Additionally, job seekers gain a greater understanding of what employers are looking for and how to speak their language. In today’s environment, virtual job fairs are the norm and time spent developing skills in this new format is a must for anyone transitioning from active duty. Visit Upcoming Events to learn about Job Fairs scheduled through the end of the year. And visit our Transition page for more information on the transitioning process, including resources to aid in your job search.

The effects of COVID-19 are being felt all around the world. The virus has changed our lives in so many ways--including how we shop. Shopping online has become a necessity for many of us as "stay home" orders are implemented throughout the world. The Navy Supply Corps Foundation has partnered with Amazon to establish a way for you to shop online and help support our mission. 

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the Navy Supply Corps Foundation, a nonprofit organization supporting the Supply Community.

Visit smile.amazon.com and on your first visit select Navy Supply Corps Foundation, Inc. as your charitable organization before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection and every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation to the Foundation. 

Let's use this unique opportunity to give to our Community while staying safe!
