Naval Supply Depot Norfolk-New Web Module
A new web module on the history of the Naval Supply Depot Norfolk is now online at http://www.hrnm.navy.mil/navysupplydepot/index.htm.
The module is part of a programmatic agreement with the State Historic Preservation Officer of Virginia, Commander, Navy Region, Mid-Atlantic (the regional shore command that oversees installions in Hampton Roads), and the museum.
Now called Fleet Industrial Supply Center (FISC) Norfolk, the Depot was one of the largest distributors of war supplies during both World Wars. The module highlights achievements of the Depot during the first half of the 20th century.
