Donor Stories

  • A Commodore to be Missed

    Though the Institute staff has the pleasure of dealing on a daily basis with many outstanding members, authors, and donors, some invariably stand out.  The late Everett “Tuck” Weaver of Winnetka, Illinois, who died in September, is one.  Generous and modest to the extreme,...

  • A Mother’s Support of her Marine Son: Going...

    Now, more than ever, there is a critical place for an organization such as the Naval Institute that encourages debate on all sides of an issue.  I decided to further support [my son’s] career choice in one of the few ways available to me—by making a gift to the Institute. ...

  • U of I NROTC Gift Memberships

    Digital-media entrepreneur and author Christopher P. Michel of San Francisco has agreed to underwrite Institute memberships for midshipmen in the NROTC unit at the University of Illinois for the next several years.  A former naval flight officer, Chris received his commission through this...

  • In His Own Words: John T. Pigott

    I thoroughly enjoy Proceedings and Naval History magazines.  The continuation of their robust health is a major reason why I have, over many years, given as generously to the Naval Institute as I could—and will continue to do so.  I might add that in 1944 I was a commissioning...

  • In Their Own Words – Joseph Callo

    One cannot learn how important our Navy is while watching the nightly news, and that is exactly why the Naval Institute Foundation is so important.  It supports the kind of intellectual exploration of naval and maritime matters that is lacking elsewhere.  The Foundation is not just a...

  • In His Own Words: LT Matthew Hipple, USN

    More than anything else, the Naval Institute is where ideas--not rank--dominate the discourse.  In a world of buzzwords, pet projects, and pop-policy, it's critical to have a strong institution where a JO or NCO's insight counts as much as the think-tank academic or the admiral.

  • In His Own Words: George W. Carmany III

    Copies of Proceedings attracted my young grandson Charles's attention--warships caught his fancy as they had mine--so the time had come to make an honest man of him.  With help from his grandfather, Charles is now a Naval Institute Member and a sustaining donor.  As the...
