Those Who Cannot Remember the Past. . .
The 66th anniversary of the Battle of Midway has come . . . and passed, with little apparent fanfare. Apart from some obligatory message traffic discussing a few of our most significant past naval engagements, there is no firmly established process or program that unit commanders can use to commemorate our naval heritage. The Navy needs to bolster efforts to inculcate a more profound and universal sense of this heritage. One venue that may be worth exploring is the U.S. Army's staff ride program.
