* Prepare inventory reports and correspondence
* Keep official publications up to date
* Maintain financial logs and records

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.
