  • In His Own Words: Earl F. Rippee

    Over the years, I’ve taken satisfaction in supporting the Naval Institute. I don’t always like what I read in its publications and hear at its seminars, but I am proud to do my part to make sure everyone—no matter how much I disagree with what they say—has a place to air...

  • 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,...

  • In His Own Words: David J. Gray

    Understanding history sharpens strategic skills and enables us to function on a higher level.  Our bequest will help underwrite conferences, articles, books and lectures at the Institute’s discretion. By including the Naval Institute in my estate plans, my support will continue beyond...

  • 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 Their Own Words – Sally McElwreath Callo

    During my [naval] reserve career I came to understand the dedication of my career Navy counterparts and the overarching importance of the U.S. Navy to our past, present and future.  That has translated naturally to support for the Naval Institute Foundation and its support for the rigorous...

  • In His Own Words: Alexander Brast Thomas

    The Navy and all it stands for remain an important part of my life.  I have been a Life Member of the Naval Instiute for 40 years.  Supporting the USNI mission, financially and in other ways, is something I care about deeply.  And thinking now of the Institute’s rich and...

  • 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...

  • Special Assistant to the CNO Says Thanks

    First and foremost, the index of articles has been invaluable as CNO's Speechwriter.  The ability to reach back and pull information has proven key when writing several articles and speeches for CNO.  Thank you! Secondly, I'm glad to see the USNI app has gone mainstream. . ....
