  • 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...

  • Former Prof of Naval Science Sponsors Gift...

    I am confident that the newly commissioned ensigns from Marquette will benefit from membership in the Institute,” Dave says.  “As these young men and women begin their naval careers, I want them to have the same advantages that USNI membership brought me.  The Institute is...

  • 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. ...

  • 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,...

  • 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. . ....

  • 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...
