Members of the SURFPAC
staff, along with San Diego waterfront leadership, have planned a number of activities designed to introduce midshipmen to the surface Navy.
We are aboard ships every day conducting training, support and mentoring to make sure our SURFPAC
ships are in the best possible shape to succeed in missions.
I have served tours on the AIRPAC and SURFPAC
staffs, and I have had tours overseas at Naval Supply Depot Subic Bay.
LCDR Giordano recalls, "clearly the staff (SURFPAC
) did not want the depot taking business away from the resupply ships, but it made no sense to load the stores ships at the pier, and then have them transfer material to Fleet ships at adjacent piers." He convinced the SURFPAC
Supply Department that the depot would provide them the Fleet issue data so they could build up the Fleet load lists.
The program will be introduced to Commander, Naval Surface Force, Pacific (SURFPAC
) ships in the near future.
