  • 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. ...

  • 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 Her Own Words: Ingrid S. Beach

    Between the splendid books offered by the Naval Institute Press and the stirring videos from the “Americans at War” series, I am struck by how well the Institute is keeping abreast of modern technology and incorporating high-profile techniques into its publishing business.  But...

  • 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.

  • In His Own Words: Hon. Gordon R. England

    The Naval Institute is now a national resource:  It builds public understanding of the naval services, helps to develop future naval leaders, preserves and makes widely available the history of the naval services, and influences the future direction of the sea services.

  • 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...
