This proof of concept study is designed to provide a basic understanding of the Supply Corps community, provide a comparative analysis of the organizational culture utilizing the competing values framework (CVF), and examine the impact of mentoring within an organization. Active duty and retired Supply Corps officers were surveyed on their perception of the community via questions that were created with the CVF as a guide. Our results show that there is a current demand for additional artifacts that will provide for a more balanced community. LifeLine, a proposed mobile application, is a recommended solution to encourage an evolving Supply Corps populace to seek educated, informed assistance when faced with adversity. The application also promotes open communication within the Supply Corps community for the growth of its junior officers and inspires senior officers to make an investment in the community by sharing their corporate knowledge with the next generation of officers through mentoring.
