Fly By: Sgt. Kyle J. MacDonald Pfc. Cayce Nevers

As information technology continues to develop at breakneck speed, the Corps' East Coast aviation combat element depends on the tech-savvy Marines to keep digital-age tracking systems operating smoothly. Sgt. Kyle J. MacDonald is one Marine who keeps information flowing to those who need it most. Each day, MacDonald works with two different supply systems - the Naval Aviation Logistics Command Management Information Supply System and the Relational Supply system. The NALCOMIS is an automated information system that provides aviation maintenance and materiel management with timely, accurate and complete information, which is used by supply, squadrons and the work centers. The RSUPPLY system provides submarine, surface, amphibious and aviation units with online inventory, logistics and financial management tools. Together, these systems allow Marines to place requisitions, track orders and inventory, and ensure squadrons get everything they need to support their operational tempo and maintain a high state of readiness. MacDonald said it is important for him to have a solid understanding of related supply functions. "I enjoy being able to interact with everyone in supply."
