  • In His Own Words: Ali Wambold

    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...

  • 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 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: 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.

  • 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: 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...
