The Fork Union Military Academy Quartermaster Department works to outfit and supply cadets and faculty with uniforms, military supplies, and various other necessary items. They have a working knowledge of the inventory in the Hoffman Supply Center and are able to put cadets in full uniform in one week or less.
Each cadet is issued more than 50 different uniform items and supplies for their barracks room, and the Quartermaster Department maintains a large inventory to accommodate changing sizes and outfit new cadets as they arrive throughout the year.
The Quartermaster also provides all of the additional uniform articles such as insignia for cadet rank, ribbons, pins, patches, and shoulder cords. You can learn more about cadet rank insignia in this blog post.
There is a part-time seamstress on campus to alter clothing as needed, and the Quartermaster Department works with the Commandant's Department and Athletics Department to provides dry-cleaning services for various clothing items.
The Quartermaster Department also handles a variety of other responsibilities including managing UPS/FedEx shipping and receiving operations, ordering school-wide office supplies, scheduling usage of the transportation fleet, and managing Student ID cards.
The Quartermaster maintains a list of all required uniform items, as well as items and supplies that may be brought from home.
You may find a copy of the current uniform and supplies list in the Resources section of the Parents page of this website.
