In His Own Words: Rear Admiral Joseph F. Callo, USNR (Ret.)
I first became involved with the Naval Institute when I responded to a mail solicitation immediately after coming off two years of active duty that followed my NROTC commissioning. As a writer, I rely heavily on Proceedings, Naval History, USNI News, and the Naval Institute Press books for information and informed thinking on subjects related to sea power.
The Naval Institute advances my philanthropic goals, because it provides unique intellectual products related to sea power. If we do not maintain a Navy equal to the ongoing threats, nothing else matters. If our Sea Services are not up to meet the ongoing national security threats, our national survival is in doubt.
