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 Replete with historical references, the book describes the establishment of the Supply Corps under Tench Francis and follows it to the Naval Supply Systems Command of today.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.
