National American Indian Heritage Month

Each November during "National American Indian Heritage Month" we acknowledge the significant and fundamental contributions American Indians and Alaskan Natives have made to shape the character and heritage of the United States. This month is also a time to celebrate the vibrant and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories of Native peoples.

The 2017 theme, "Standing Together," focuses on the importance of our positive relationships with people from all backgrounds and the strength of our unity. American Indians and Alaskan Natives in all walks of life contribute to our communities with strong leaders and unique insights that enrich our culture.

American Indians and Alaskan Natives have participated in every major U.S. military encounter from the Revolutionary War to today's conflicts in the Middle East. While they make up about two percent of our population, American Indians and Alaskan Natives serve at a higher rate in proportion to their population than any other ethnic group. Currently more than 9,000 Sailors and 2,000 civilians of American Indian and Alaskan Native heritage serve in the Navy. Each of these individuals offers unique perspectives that bolster our fight.

As we celebrate the many contributions of American Indians and Alaskan Natives, let us also remember our dedication to supporting and maintaining an inclusive culture. By embracing our diversity, we strengthen our Navy, improve readiness, and enhance overall performance.

Veterans Day

On November 11, we honor our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen serving on the front lines, the supply lines and guarding the shores back home.

Originally known as Armistice Day, President Woodrow Wilson established Veterans Day in 1919 to remember the end of World War I. As our Armed Forces were called to duty in subsequent wars, the holiday was expanded in 1954 to pay tribute to all our nation's service members, both past and present, and especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.

The Navy Supply Corps remains committed to the officers and enlisted personnel in whose footsteps we follow. We seek their knowledge and wisdom, and learn from their experiences. Throughout NAVSUP and the Navy supply community, we admire and support those who served in uniform and the men and women serving our Nation today.

Veterans Day is an opportunity for every American to offer appreciation and respect to our veterans and their families, to those serving at the tip of the spear and to those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Beyond Veteran's Day, I encourage you to remember the importance of our nation's military and its veterans throughout the year.

Have a meaningful and memorable Veterans Day.

Happy 242nd Birthday U.S. Marine Corps

On behalf of NAVSUP and the Navy Supply Corps, it is my honor to congratulate the men and women of the United States Marine Corps as you celebrate your 242nd birthday on 10 November.

Time and time again, from the Battle of Nassau to the Battle of Sangin, the Marine Corps has performed their duty with the utmost courage, devotion, and raw determination. Marines continue to carry on their warrior spirit and build upon their impressive history, as they carry out missions around the globe.

The close-knit partnership between the Navy and Marine Corps has played a key role in building the Supply Community into who we are today. We remain committed to our partnership with the Marines, as we face a dangerous and unpredictable world. We are thankful for their honor, courage, commitment, virtue, and character.

Happy 242nd Birthday United States Marine Corps, and Semper Fidelis!

National Disability Employment Awareness Month

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This year's theme, Inclusion Drives Innovation, was developed to recognize the contributions and achievements brought to the workforce by workers with disabilities.

NDEAM dates back to 1945, when Congress enacted a law declaring the first week in October each year as "National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week." In 1962, the word "physically" was removed to acknowledge the employment needs and contributions of individuals with all types of disabilities. In 1988, Congress expanded the week to a month and changed the name to "National Disability Employment Awareness Month."

Today, employing a diverse, inclusive workforce helps NAVSUP better execute our mission and serve our customers. NAVSUP is committed to welcoming all individuals who bring new and innovative ways of thinking.

Earlier this month, the Department of the Navy (DoN) was recognized as the Best Military Department at the 37th Annual Department of Defense Disability Awards Ceremony at the Pentagon. Three DoN federal employees received individual recognition, including one of our outstanding performers, Ms. Kelly Thomas. Ms. Thomas, a human resources specialist in the workforce development branch, training and development team at Naval Supply Systems Command Headquarters received the Outstanding DoD Civilian Employees with Disabilities Award for her contributions as the program manager of the Honorary and Organization Awards Program, the Individual Development Plan Program, and the Competency Manager Program.

Please join me in congratulating Ms. Thomas. Further, please join me in recognizing those in our workforce with all abilities who provide exceptional support to Navy and Joint warfighters!

Happy Birthday, Navy!

The United States Navy traces its origins to the establishment of the Continental Navy on October 13, 1775.  On that day, the Continental Congress authorized the procurement, fitting out, manning and dispatch of two vessels to cruise in search of munitions ships supplying the British Army in America.

Since its earliest days, the U.S. Navy forward-deployed to deter and, if necessary, defeat our adversaries, safeguard our national interests, and defend our homeland.  Today, in an increasingly complex global security environment, the mission endures and the Navy continues to deploy around the globe, from the Arabian Gulf to the South and East China Seas to the North Atlantic and beyond.

The Navy plays a key role in maintaining international stability, including the free flow of commerce across global markets.  Approximately 90 percent of all world trade is conducted on the seas, and a strong, capable force is essential to protect shipping lanes.

At the same time the Navy provides vital humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, most recently supporting the recovery efforts following the hurricanes that devastated Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  From planning and preparations before the storms, to recovery efforts after the storms, the Navy led the way, adapting to rapidly-changing requirements.

In each of these vital Naval missions, the Supply Corps plays a key role.  We are Ready for Sea, with military and civilian personnel answering the call whenever and wherever they are most needed.  As a Navy and as a supply community, we are defined by our integrity, accountability, initiative, and toughness, and are poised for a bright future.

Happy birthday!

NAVSUP Realignment Initial Operational Capability (IOC)

NAVSUP Enterprise Team,

As our NAVSUP realignment progresses, we are now at Initial Operational Capability (IOC).  SECNAV approved our Organizational Change Request (OCR) to realign key functions to NAVSUP HQ, disestablish NAVSUP Global Logistics Support as a command, and designate the Fleet Logistics Centers as Echelon III commands.  Additionally, NAVSUP Ammunition and NAVSUP Energy will be realigned to NAVSUP HQ.

IOC denotes the beginning of the realignment implementation and includes actions for many parts of the Enterprise.  The NAVSUP HQ ACOMs will now execute their portions of the realignment, with all actions completed for Full Operational Capability (FOC) NLT 1 October 2018.

We value our employees and are committed to implementing these changes in a way that will minimize disruptions, while keeping everyone well-informed.  Over the next year, as many billets transition from San Diego to Mechanicsburg, the NAVSUP team looks forward to supporting one another.

The MyNAVSUP intranet page includes a realignment information page with references, resources, and responses to employee questions.

Providing optimal service to our customers remains our primary focus, as we provide the Navy and Joint Warfighter the vital supplies, services, and quality-of-life support needed to accomplish our national defense mission.

Thank you for your continued support of NAVSUP, our Navy, and our country.

Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) evolved from the first "Day of Unity" held in October 1981.  The "Day of Unity" was intended to connect battered women's advocates across the country who were working to end violence against women and their children.  Since then, three main themes have become the focus of DVAM:  mourning those who have died because of domestic violence, celebrating those who have survived domestic violence, and connecting those who work to end domestic violence.

Domestic violence, which includes emotional as well as physical abuse, includes threats, isolation, extreme jealousy, intimidation, and humiliation.  One in four women, as well as one in seven men over the age of 18, has been the victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in his or her lifetime.  Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, economic status, religion, gender or disability.

If you or someone you know needs help, don't wait; resources are available.  Talk to a friend, counselor, or supervisor.  Military members can find resources on the Fleet and Family Support Program website at  Civilian employee assistance is available via the Department of the Navy Civilian Employee Assistance Program (DONCEAP) at 1-844-366-2327 or  Additionally, military and civilian personnel can call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE, or visit

Everyone has the right to live without fear, free from the threat of violence and abuse.  Every victim of domestic violence should know they are not alone.  We must all work together to foster communities that support full and healthy lives.
