Admiral Stan Arthur, U.S. Navy (Retired)—I applaud Proceedings for publishing Admiral Mauz’s discussion of the events at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) precipitated by the Navy Inspector General (IG) investigation. I found the article very balanced and a constructive framework for plotting the course forward for this fine institution.
First, I must express my complete support for the dedication and forward-leaning leadership that Vice Admiral Dan Oliver and Dr. Leonard Ferrari provided. I find the Postgraduate School to be far advanced from the time I was a student there in the early 1960s. I can honestly say that I was provided a technical education that changed the course of my career. I can only add my “Amen” to Admiral Mauz’s statement that “the Naval Postgraduate School makes a very significant (if undervalued) contribution to national security, and it does so in a very cost-effective way.”
