FLASH FROM THE CHIEF: Admiral Stan Arthur Award Winners
FLASH FROM THE CHIEF: Admiral Stan Arthur Award Winners
Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Fleet Readiness and Logistics VADM Ricky Williamson recently announced the winners of the 2018 Admiral Stan Arthur Awards. These military and civilian logisticians exemplify excellence in logistics operations and execution to support the warfighter in an unpredictable environment. Lieutenant Commander Scott Long, Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) Weapon Systems Support (WSS) Philadelphia, has been named 2018 Military Logistician of the Year. This year there were two Logistics Teams of the Year. They are the USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) Supply Department and a team led by Commander, U.S. 6th Fleet Logistics Readiness Cell (LRC) which included NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center (FLC) Sigonella and also the Truman Supply Department.
Military Logistician of the Year
While serving as director, F/A-18 and EA-18G Integrated Weapons Support Team, NAVSUP WSS, Long’s leadership and strategic vision motivated his team to provide integrated supply support, planning and execution, and maintenance of logistics support data for all Navy and Marine Corps F/A-18 and EA-18G aircraft. Long, directly responsible for the material support driving three type model series aircraft programs to the Secretary of Defense-mandated 80 percent mission-capable rates, was the driving force in achieving the highest number of F/A-18 mission capable aircraft in over five years. He expertly led a multi-organizational team that integrated organic and commercial industry repair and spares production to significantly improve material availability. His efforts resulted in a 39 percent reduction in backorders for the fleet’s top 25 material readiness degraders. Long collaborated with the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) F/A-18 Program Office, Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Aviation, NAVSUP WSS Contracting, Office of the Chief of Naval Operations N98, NAVAIR 4.2 Cost Department, and contracting partners to implement an integrated sustainment solution resulting in prioritization of both spares and repairs for flight control surfaces in support of current and future readiness. His efforts drive immediate industry investments in manpower, material, tooling, and overall capacity to expedite production of future combat systems at considerable cost optimization for the Navy.
Logistics Teams of the Year
USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) Supply Department
The Truman Carrier Strike Group (HSTCSG) executed a deployment supporting the Secretary of the Defense’s concept of Dynamic Force Employment (DFE). An enterprising team of logisticians from the Truman were tasked with developing and executing reformative logistics concepts to overcome operational constraints. While they flawlessly supported HSTCSG in austere conditions, they developed solid strategic and enduring concepts for global CVN logistics support. They demonstrated professional logistics excellence in planning, preparing and sustaining the Truman, Carrier Strike Group EIGHT, and Carrier Air Wing ONE, enabling them to operate continuously and fight decisively during one of the Navy’s most operationally challenging deployments.
Team led by Commander, U.S. 6th Fleet LRC which included NAVSUP FLC Sigonella and the Truman Supply Department
In support of DFE for the HSTCSG and Exercise Trident Juncture 2018, the U.S. Naval Forces Europe Logistics Enterprise delivered critical logistics support to the deployed warfighters in unconventional locations. It was led by Commander, U.S. 6th Fleet (C6F) Logistics Readiness Cell (LRC) in partnership with a wide array of logisticians including our own NAVSUP FLC Sigonella and the Truman Supply Department. The C6F LRC used their maritime operations center logistics synchronization working group meetings with key members to develop a supply chain network to support sustained operations globally. NAVSUP FLC Sigonella deployed an operational support element that expeditiously received, prepared, and transported high-priority material, cargo, hazardous/special material, and mail. Though weather and operational requirements demanded daily changes in replenishment schedules, the logistics enterprise kept the fleet stocked, repaired, and ready to fight. 
Long, Truman Supply Department and the LRC all greatly exhibited the innovation, professionalism, and dedication to the Navy mission. 
Please join me in congratulating Lt. Cmdr. Scott Long, USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) Supply Department and NAVSUP FLC Sigonella on their exceptional accomplishments!
