In October 1985, Proceedings featured Surface Warfare in a speical issue; in October 1986, Naval Aviation received special issue treatment; this October, Submarine and Antisubmarine Warfare will be the focus of this fall's special issue of Proceedings. To encourage thinking and writing for this special issue, our newest essay mini-contest's subject is: "Submarine and Antisubmarine Warfare Today and Tomorrow."
