Billets in the Spotlight
Position Title: Logistic Support Officer at FISC Yokosuka, Japan
This is a new billet for FISC Yokosuka that spawned from the growth of the NAVSUPLogistic Support Center concept. This billet is slated to be filled by a lieutenant commander, but this is not yet listed in manning doctrine. This billet is responsible for managing four divisions comprised of 75 Navy/Marine/ U.S. civil service/Japanese MLC personnel servicing homeported units stationed in Japan and WestPac deployed units operating in the 5th and 7th Fleet. The break down of the divisions with areas of responsibilities is listed below:
Three logistics support representative teams are primarily responsible for providing single point of contact and support for all customer requirements to activate other service providers as required.
The Material Processing Center provides management and oversight for sorting, segregating, and online visibility of GSK stock. Additionally, it coordinates all onloads for availability of ISSOT working parties, MHE equipment, and vendor delivery schedule.
The Provision section receives and processes all orders for S-2 and S-3 divisions for afloat units homeported in Yokosuka and Naval Station Diego Garcia.
The Husbanding section provides on-site support for U.S. Naval ships visiting NON-U.S. Navy ports throughout mainland Japan.
Exception processing branch corrects and clears any rejected or unresolved requisitions requiring manual intervention.

Quality of life:
Japan is an excellent duty station. Currently 0-4s five off post. Housing is readily available; you can five close enough to walk to work. A car is recommended and a reliable vehicle can be purchased for as little as $300-400. There is a good train and subway system. There are numerous cultural events and places to go. It is very easy to travel and reach all destinations within Asia and the Pacific via the airport in Tokyo. Yokosuka Naval Station has won the best installation award three years in row and the base galley is on its 4th Ney Award. The Navy MWR here is excellent; they put out a quarterly newsletter with upcoming events.
