NAVSUP Sailor of the Year 2017

The Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) 2017 Sailor of the year is Logistics Specialist First Class (Air Warfare/Surface) Thomas E. Allen II of NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center (FLC) Norfolk.

Demonstrating exceptional leadership skills and keen technical expertise, he expertly led 20 Sailors during Integrated Logistics Overhauls (ILOs) for seven Atlantic Fleet ships. In addition, he led a team of 63 Sailors and six civilians to on-load 12,000 line items onboard USS Arlington (LPD 24), resulting in a 98.9 percent inventory validity, exceeding Type Commander goals.

Embodying the NAVSUP vision to be the Navy's trusted provider of supplies, services, and quality-of-life support to the Navy and joint warfighter, his hands-on leadership was beneficial in the offload and inventory of more than 12,000 line items valued at over $16 million for USS Gonzalez(DDG 66). He also flawlessly managed tech manual revisions and assembly for seven surface ships with zero discrepancies. In addition, he spearheaded the implementation of the Quality Assurance program at ILOs. Firmly establishing himself as a proficient quality assurance supervisor, his efforts resulted in saving $750,000 in carcass charges and surveys for USS Ramage (DDG 61) and USS Gonzalez (DDG 66).

Regardless of operational tempo and mission requirements, he always made time for his Sailors and embodied the "mission first, Sailor's always" maxim. He effectively created a workplace environment that values diversity and creativity, promotes trust and open communication, and stimulates personal and professional growth.

Petty Officer Allen, a native of Athens, Tennessee, enlisted in the Navy as an Aviation Storekeeper (AK) in 1997. After completing AK 'A' School, he reported to USS Truman (CVN 75) in Norfolk, Virginia. Following sea duty, he reported to Naval Auxiliary Landing Field Fentress in Chesapeake, Virginia. In 2005, he reported to the VFA-131 Wildcats from Naval Air Station Oceana. During his tour, he made two deployments onboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69). In 2009, he reported to Aviation Support Detachment, Norfolk as the Command Career Counselor, shortly after which he was promoted to First Class Petty Officer. In 2012, he reported onboard the USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), where he served as Retrograde Asset Management Leading Petty Officer, the Supply Response Section Leading Petty Officer, and the Safety Department Leading Petty Officer. In 2015, he reported to NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center, Norfolk, where he served as the Code 500 Department Leading Petty Officer, the Assistant Training Officer, and General Military Training Coordinator.

Our enlisted Sailors, serving in positions throughout the NAVSUP enterprise, provide vital support to our Navy, nation and allies. LS1 AW/SW) Allen exemplifies this effort. Please join me in congratulating LS1(AW/SW) Allen for his selection, and for a job well done! Bravo Zulu!

Celebrating National African American/Black History Month

National African American History Month, also known as Black History Month, is our annual celebration of African Americans' achievements and remembrance of their struggles for freedom, equality and justice. It is also a time to recognize the central role they played in the history of the United States.

This commemoration originated with the Association for the Study of Negro Life and History, now known as the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), founded by historian and author Dr. Carter G. Woodson in 1915. Dr. Woodson and the ASALH initiated the first Negro History Week, February 1926. Since 1976, every U.S. President has officially designated the month of February as National African American History/Black History Month.

This year's theme, "African Americans in Times of War" commemorates the centennial of the end of the First World War in 1918, and highlights the service and sacrifice of African Americans during wartime from the Revolutionary War to present. We remember to celebrate the many individuals who honorably served their country -- some of whom made the ultimate sacrifice in defending this great nation.

Serving first with state navies, the Continental Navy, and then with the Department of the Navy, African Americans began commanding ships, submarines, and shore establishments during the 1960s and 1970s. In 1974, the Navy issued its first Navy Equal Opportunity Manual and two years later issued its first Navy Affirmative Action Plan.

Today, African American Sailors distinguish themselves ashore, on ships, in aircraft, and on submarines through times of peace and conflict. They represent nineteen percent of the enlisted force, seventeen percent of all senior chiefs and master chiefs, seven percent of all officers, and four percent of all admirals. African Americans also represent fifteen percent of the civilian workforce.

As an integral part of our Navy and supply community team, African Americans bring diversity of thoughts, ideas, and competencies that sustain and ensure protection of the freedoms and opportunities we enjoy. Please take time this month to learn more about African Americans' legacies and successes that have made our country exceptional.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'" said Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Propelled by his inspiring philosophy, we celebrate and observe his birthday as a "Day of Service."   On this day, we honor the contributions of Dr. King, who fostered equality and helped others by breaking down barriers, addressing social problems, and strengthening communities.

We can answer his call by taking the "day on, not a day off," and helping in our communities. Volunteer opportunities are everywhere, and the need is great.  Specific opportunities in your community are listed at www.nationalservice.gov/mlkday.

Inspired by the strength, persistence and determination exhibited by Dr. King, we can also ensure our NAVSUP teammates receive the support and encouragement needed to be their best.  Throughout NAVSUP, we value the diversity of thought and culture that all military and civilian personnel bring to the team. It makes us stronger both as individuals and as an organization.

The power of Dr. King's words still resonate today, and inspire us to take action on his birthday to honor his life of service. Let us renew our commitment to volunteering and helping others not only on this day, but throughout the year.
