To help celebrate 125 years as the sea services "premier forum for thoughtful dialogue,” the Naval Institute asked some of its members and readers to answer the question: What does the Naval Institute mean to you as a person and/or to the military profession? Throughout the anniversary year, we will publish some of these testimonials that we have been delighted to receive.
General Charles C. Krulak, U.S. Marine Corps
The United States Marine Corps has long been noted for its ability to innovate and adapt. New ideas and concepts, welcomed and encouraged, have kept us in front of an evolving world and evolving threats. For the past 125 years, the United States Naval Institute has been a critical ally in our innovation. The pages of Proceedings and Naval History have been the mill for the grist of new ideas to challenge old paradigms.
