The U.S. Naval Institute is a non-profit membership association serving a community of individuals who participate in an open forum to debate key issues in the Sea Services. We serve our members by providing a monthly journal, Proceedings, and other news products; the Naval Institute Press publishes over eighty titles per year; our Archives protect and preserve our naval heritage; and networking and professional development programs occur via our conferences and events.

The Naval Institute shall remain:


A non-profit member association, with no government support, that does not lobby for special interests;


An independent, professional military association with a mission, goals, and objectives that transcend political affiliations;


Ideas and debate flourish through its respected journals, Proceedings and Naval History, its conferences, its books and its online content, in support of those who serve.

Raise your voice and get involved in this crucial mission.
