Quartermaster

The umbrella that covers cadet services includes many of our staff that does not teach but has just as much day-to-day interaction with our cadets.

Hoffman Supply Center

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 and location of all items and are able to put cadets in full uniform in one week or less. Each cadet is issued more than 50 different items, and the Quartermaster Department maintains a large inventory to accommodate changing sizes and outfit new cadets as they arrive throughout the year.

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, which provides dry-cleaning services for various clothing items. The Quartermaster Department also handles a variety of other responsibilities including managing UPS operations, ordering school-wide office supplies, scheduling usage of the transportation fleet, and managing Student ID cards.

Uniform & Supplies Lists

Packing List for New Cadets

Uniforms
All new cadets (boarding and day) will be required to purchase new uniform items. Used items will not be allowed. Fork Union Military Academy takes pride in the fact that the cadet uniforms are well-tailored and properly fitted. In the event an incorrect size is issued, the cadet should return the item to the Supply center promptly so it can be inspected and replaced. Should the parent have a question concerning the cadet’s clothing, do not hesitate to contact the Quartermaster.

To avoid delays and ensure proper fit in issuing caps, it is strongly suggested that cadets report with a regulation haircut as specified on the Barbershop page.
Lost or Damaged Items
With the large number of students at the Academy, it is hard for the Quartermaster’s Department to monitor individual purchases made by each cadet. If items are lost or damaged through neglect or carelessness, then they must be replaced by the cadet in a timely manner. We want to stress that there is a complete understanding on the part of the cadet that all items are handled with care and responsibility. We encourage parents to advise their cadets in advance of this important information. Please understand that if an item is lost or damaged, he will need to be accountable for replacing the uniform or clothing. Thank you for helping us with this communication.

Uniform Account (Mandatory)

This account is required for all cadets and will be charged as necessary to maintain proper uniform attire for each cadet. Parental authorization is not necessary for cadets to charge uniform items to this account.

Note: There are also charges for additional uniform articles such as insignia for cadet rank, ribbons, pins, patches, shoulder cords, etc. These charges will be applied to your Uniform Account as they arise.

Required Items

Because our issued uniform items contain FUMA embroidery and/or screen printing they are specific to Fork Union Military Academy, and thus will not be included in the list of required items that may be brought from home.

Returning cadets may find this list useful as well, but should also refer to the supply list for returning cadets.
