  • Rep. Forbes Thanks the Naval Institute

    I thank the Naval Institute for the great work its done for some 140 years. I¹m blessed to have supporting me an incredibly gifted young staff, and I was thinking how great it¹s been for the Naval Institute throughout all these years to give this kind of...

  • 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: Hon. Sean O'Keefe

  • 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.
