Mission

"The Mission of the Institute is to provide an independent forum for those who dare to read, think, speak, and write in order to advance the professional, literary, and scientific understanding of sea power and other issues critical to national defense."
 

… and shall encourage IDEAS – Through its respected journals Proceedings and Naval History

 

Proceedings exists to give voice to those with ideas or thoughts concerning the nation's defense, and the interest in sharing them in an open forum. No related subjects are off-limits, and the magazine is an honest broker, taking no position on issues or the ideas expressed, other than unrestricted support for those who serve, past and present.

Naval History preserves the riveting accounts of those who shaped our naval heritage and the events that defined the legacies of our maritime nation. Its objective is to use stunning illustrations and period art to educate and entertain readers with the real stories behind pivotal engagements, and little-known skirmishes that put a human face on naval history.
