NORFOLK, Va. (NNS) -- The NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center Norfolk Navy Food Management Team hosted an advancement package review January 30, to assist first class petty officers, chiefs and senior chiefs eligible for advancement.

According to Chief Machinist’s Mate Hector Martinez, a NFMT instructor, the event attracted 90 attendees, who had their advancement packages reviewed by a team of 13 master chiefs. The annual event is open to E-6 and above from inside and outside the Navy Supply community.
