As the Naval Institute prepares to celebrate its sesquicentennial in 2023, we are reminded that the Institute has been through many periods of global change.

The U.S. Naval Institute is a private, self-supporting, not-for-profit professional society that publishes Proceedings as part of the open forum it maintains for the Sea Services. The Naval Institute is not an agency of the U.S. government; the opinions expressed in these pages are the personal views of the authors.
