  • 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 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: 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.

    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...
