The U.S. Naval Institute and Proceedings have featured special coverage of Naval Aviation in the September issue for a long time. This tradition supported our presence at the annual Tailhook Symposium, where we successfully recruit new members each year.
Two stalwart naval aviators and longtime Naval Institute members are contributors to this issue—Admiral Stan Arthur and Vice Admiral Bob Dunn.
Admiral Arthur, an Institute member since 1983, just completed his oral history with the Naval Institute Press. In this month’s “Lest We Forget” column (page 94) senior staff member Denis Clift captures two pivotal chapters in Admiral Arthur’s career. Over the years Admiral Arthur has participated in many Naval Institute-sponsored conferences. One of the most memorable was in Chicago, where we brought together the Operation Desert Storm commanders—Admiral Arthur, Air Force General Chuck Horner, Army General John Yeosock, and Marine Corps General Walt Boomer.
