  • 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...

  • Naval Photos

    Thanks to the USNI I was able to purchase photos of the ships my Dad served on during his 10+ years of Naval Service.

  • 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: 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: 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...

  • In His Own Words: Hon. Gordon R. England

    The Naval Institute is now a national resource:  It builds public understanding of the naval services, helps to develop future naval leaders, preserves and makes widely available the history of the naval services, and influences the future direction of the sea services.

  • In His Own Words: Hon. Sean O'Keefe

    I was inspired to become a member because of the exceptional capability of the Naval Institute to focus on strategic events and frame them relative to the rich history of the naval services, to provide for the common defense, and to shape our nation's foreign policy objectives and interests...

  • In Her Own Words: Ingrid S. Beach

    Between the splendid books offered by the Naval Institute Press and the stirring videos from the “Americans at War” series, I am struck by how well the Institute is keeping abreast of modern technology and incorporating high-profile techniques into its publishing business.  But...
