* Analyze the demand for supplies and forecast future needs

* Order, store, check and issue Naval aircraft and aeronautical equipment and accessories, including flight gear

* Prepare inventory reports and correspondence

* Keep official publications up to date

* Maintain financial logs and records

WORK ENVIRONMENT

TRAINING & ADVANCEMENT

From there, Supply Officers attend Navy Supply School in Newport, Rhode Island, for a 27-week Basic Qualification Course.

Prospective Officers may also receive specialized training in transportation management, freight classifications, methods of working with civilian and other service carriers, and special handling of medicines and explosives.

After that, they receive technical "A" school training in Meridian, Miss., where they learn skills including automated data processing systems, financial records and accounting systems, and postal operations training.

For both Supply Officers and Logistics Specialists, promotion opportunities are regularly available but are competitive and based on performance. It's also important to note that specialized training received and work experience gained in the course of service can lead to valuable credentialing and occupational opportunities in related fields.

* Pursuing opportunities at institutions such as Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) or Navy War College (NWC)
