Our Deepest Thanks
In this month of Thanksgiving, we salute a supporter whose generosity has greatly strengthened the Naval Institute.
Vice Admiral William D. Houser, USN (Ret.)
For nearly four decades, Vice Admiral William Douglas Houser (1921–2012) was an active and enthusiastic participant in the Naval Institute as a Member, author, and supporter. All who knew him understood his longstanding passion for the Battle of Midway and his commitment to ensuring that its significance never be forgotten. His Naval Academy Class of 1942, which graduated early in December 1941 for wartime service, holds that it had more participants at Midway than any other.
