CAPT John L. Kizer, SC, USN (Ret.)
Board of Directors Chair
The Washington, DC Chapter was named as the winner in the Large category and will be awarded $2500; the Mechanicsburg Chapter, winner in the Medium chapter category, will receive $1500; and the Monterey Chapter, winner in the Small category, earned $1000. The funds are provided to allow the chapter to host a family event of their choosing within the Community Values and Traditions guidelines. In addition Foundation will recognize the tremendous efforts of three other chapters, South West Asia, Tampa Bay and Hawaii, by awarding them $500 each for a similar event of their choosing.
More than 320 names were added to the Navy Supply Corps Foundation mailing list as a result of the effort. The Spirit Award provides a positive reward to the chapters, however the best outcome is to those “lost” members who will now be reconnected with the Supply Corps and share in the spirit of camaraderie, heritage and service that the Navy Supply Corps Foundation provides.
Congratulations to the chapter winners and a special thank you to each chapter president and all the members who supported this effort.
The final numbers list.
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. Replete with historical references, the book describes the establishment of the Supply Corps under Tench Francis and follows it to the Naval Supply Systems Command of today.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.
