  • 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. ...

  • 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...

  • 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 Their Own Words – Joseph Callo

    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: David J. Gray

    Understanding history sharpens strategic skills and enables us to function on a higher level.  Our bequest will help underwrite conferences, articles, books and lectures at the Institute’s discretion. By including the Naval Institute in my estate plans, my support will continue beyond...

  • 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...
