Solomon C. Pflag, 94, of Cherry Hill, a former high-ranking officer in the Navy Medical Service Corps, died Friday, Aug. 22, at his home.
When he retired in 1975, Capt. Pflag was the commanding officer of the Naval Medical Materiel Support Command with headquarters in Philadelphia, daughter Sandra White said.
A Navy website states that the unit, now the Naval Medical Logistics Command, had been set up in 1973 at the Naval Hospital compound in South Philadelphia.
"He oversaw the procurement of all the medical-related supplies" for the Navy, his daughter said. "He outfitted the U.S. Navy worldwide."
Mr. Pflag served in the Navy from December 1942 to July 1975, rising to the rank of captain, the highest rank in the Navy's Medical Service Corps, his daughter said.
