Reservists add strategic depth to NAVSUP’s mission sets in Europe

03 March 2022

From Joseph Yanik, NAVSUP Public Affairs

NAS SIGONELLA, Italy -- Navy reservists assigned to Naval Supply Systems Command Fleet Logistics Center Sigonella (NAVSUP FLCSI) provide essential contributing support to the command’s logistics and supply mission sets delivering combat readiness to Naval, Joint and Allied warfighters operating across the U.S. Naval Forces Europe and Africa (NAVEUR-NAVAF) area of responsibility.

Some of FLCSI’s reservists leverage their experience at the command’s evolving operational site at Defense Munitions Crombie, Scotland, United Kingdom. Site Crombie is one of FLCSI's cooperative security locations strategically positioned to support NAVEUR-NAVAF, U.S. Sixth Fleet and Joint warfighters as they routinely conduct operations with High North Allies and Partners to ensure the region remains stable and free of conflict.

"Our Site Crombie team performs seamless door-to-door, last-tactical-mile delivery and re-supply services for the Fleet's growing demand signal in the High North, with a vision to ever-increasing end-to-end predictability and velocity for the warfighter," said Jeff Criger, FLCSI's supply chain director. "This approach, in-turn, reduces supply chain delays, unnecessary storage and transportation costs for the Navy."

To accomplish the site's support role in the High North, FLCSI’s reservists and their active-duty and civilian counterparts perform customs clearance and logistics sustainment, while also managing the movement of cargo and mail to and from ships.

“In order to perform my job, I must possess a proficiency to operate equipment and understand all aspects of logistics specialist position,” said LS3 Achilles Konguep, a reservist assigned to Site Crombie.

At FLCSI’s other strategic locations in Europe, reservists provide fully integrated support in logistics functions, fleet mail center operations and contracting services.

"There's no aspect of our logistics and supply mission that we do not look to reservists for support in some capacity," said Capt. Douglas MacKenzie, FLCSI's Commanding Officer. "Their invaluable expertise, experience and leadership add a strategic depth to how we provide critical support to the Fleet. We would not be able to do what we do without our reservists and what they bring to our total force approach to our mission."

Since 1915, the Navy’s Reservists have been providing operational capabilities to the Navy and Marine Corps teams by amplifying the U.S. Navy’s core capabilities and operations, which include forward presence, deterrence, sea control, power projection, maritime security, humanitarian assistance, and disaster response.

Reservists assigned at NAVSUP’s command in Europe ensure this tradition of service continues to the present.

FLCSI is one of NAVSUP's eight globally-positioned commands that provides for the full range of solutions for logistics, business and support services to the U.S. Naval, Joint, NATO and Allied Forces across 14 enduring and forward operating sites; forward contingency and cooperative security locations in 13 countries in Europe and Africa.
