The Supply Sergeant
The Supply Sergeant was founded in 1946 by Jack Arian, a World War II veteran. He served in the USAAF during the war, and as an ambitious young man, he started the military surplus business right after WWII. With a little money loaned by his older brother, equipped with his relentless work ethic, he opened his first Army Navy Surplus store in San Francisco in 1948.
Since then, he opened and closed over forty surplus stores, employed hundreds of men and women throughout California and Nevada, and expanded his product line to include much of what you’ll find at The Supply Sergeant today, both online and offline. He also was a founding member of the Associated Surplus Dealers organization and Army Navy Military Exhibition Show.
Jack’s family continues to offer the finest quality product lines at great prices, in Military Surplus, Camping, Disaster Survival Gears, Uniforms, Air Soft Guns, and Variety of Brand Names for both men and women such as Levi’s and Carhart.
The Supply Sergeant is an authentic full- line Military Surplus retailer, offering a broad assortment of military goods, apparel and footwear in a specialty store environment. Our utmost desire is to be recognized by our customers as America’s #1 Military Surplus stores for all military lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, through the continuous effort to improve everything we offer.
