  • 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 His Own Words: Earl F. Rippee

  • 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,...

  • 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: 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...
