Enjoy an evening of fellowship with Foundation members around the globe, celebrating the U.S. Navy Supply Corps 226th Birthday. Our Master of Ceremonies, Foundation Executive Director CAPT (ret) Daniel Pionk, will lead the traditional program which includes formal remarks, toasts and a cake cutting ceremony. Later in the program, Chapter breakout rooms will be available for more intimate engagement, moderated by Chapter leadership. You can view the full Program of Events here.
Our keynote speaker, Brody Young, was a Utah State Park Ranger whose life changed the day he began his patrol on the early evening of November 19, 2010. Shot 9 times during an ambush, he had no pulse or heartbeat, but miraculously survived and was in a comma for a month. Brody's inspirational story, "9 Miracles", centers around his strength, family, training, and perseverance. As a motivational speaker, Brody routinely speaks at the Department of Justice, FBI and other service-oriented agencies about overcoming the ordinary and extraordinary challenges we all face. As the world navigates the recent pandemic, Brody's story is sure to inspire us all and remind us of the important role we play as past and present U.S. Navy Supply Corps officers. Read more about Brody here.

The waiting room will open at 6:30pm, with a photo montage showcasing our Chapter activities. No formal dress code attire is required. Questions and comments should be directed to email@example.com .
Join us on Saturday, April 24th at 7pm ET, to celebrate the Navy Supply Corps 226th Birthday, in unison with our Supply Corps Community all over the world!
"Do some good! Shake off the regret from the borrowed time we have. Live everyday as if it was your last." -Brody Young
WAYS TO CELEBRATE
Wear purple on Purple Up Day - Wearing purple is a visible way for everyone to show support and thank military youth for their strength and sacrifices.
Web Site Feature - Schools can promote the Month of the Military Child on their web sites. Provide links to sites that offer resources for military families.
Publicize Installation/Community Events - Use the school newsletter to publicize Month of the Military Child events and activities hosted by the installation/community. Look for ways schools can contribute to these celebrations (setting up an information or activity booth, having teachers volunteer at events and activities, etc.).
Host an Assembly for Month of the Military Child - Hold a school assembly honoring military children. Include a performance by the band. Have students write a poem about what it means to be a military child and select several student volunteers to read their poems.
Salute to Military Children at Sporting Events - Have the announcer make a special announcement before, during or after sporting events recognizing all military children. Have them raise the flag, sing the National Anthem or recite the Pledge of Allegiance.
Teachers Salute Military Children - Ask teachers at your school make a special project with their classes such as a picture frame, bookmark, journal, etc., that ties into the Month of the Military Child.

Dorie Miller was the “Black Lives Matter” iconic symbol of his day where “newspaper headlines were about the injustice, and absurdity, of racial discrimination”. Like then and now, “It is never about brains or ability, it is about opportunity; from the school house to the White House.”

This is our largest issue yet—full of member contributions—including recent news, sea stories and Committee updates. Our cover stories highlight how important our members are to the Foundation's mission and the Supply Corps Community, as we say farewell to retiring Vice Chair RADM (ret) Linda Bird and thank her for more than a decade of outstanding leadership on the Board, and thank our many generous donors for your faithful contributions to the Foundation during the challenging year of 2020.
On page 6, Foundation Secretary CDR Marcus Thomas reports on our recent webinar "An Evening with the Chief", where Guest Speaker RADM Pete Stamatopoulos, Commander of NAVSUP and 49th Chief of Supply Corps, spoke to more than 400 members about the priorities of today's Supply Corps and his vision for the future. And later in the issue, LCDR Keith Darby shares how his team navigated COVID-19 protocol while supporting the 59th Presidential Inauguration.
We also dive deep into the history of the Oak Leaf collar insignia with CAPT (ret) Donald B. Hoffmann, welcome our newest Distinguished Alumnus J. Ronald Terwilliger, and learn the full story of Doris "Dorie" Miller—who was not a cook but an "Officer's Mess Attendant"—from RADM (ret) Dan McKinnon's extensive article on the "Lion of the Sea". And, on pages 10 and 25, two Supply Corps Spouses discuss how our families are thriving with a positive attitude and Community support!
