  • 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 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...

  • 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: 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: Ali Wambold

    The Naval Institute provides perspective for both military personnel and civilians as a concise, pertinent, knowledgeable, and objective source on vital topics.  All citizens need to be properly informed in deciding how they stand on such matters, and the Institute can make a big difference...
