As has been our tradition since 2000, we feature additional surface warfare coverage in the January issue. This year we have a strong lineup of solid content. In addition to six features in the article well, surface warfare issues are addressed in multiple departments, from Now Hear This to Charting a Course to Professional Notes.
There is more good news on the surface warfare front. The Surface Navy Association (SNA) selected two Proceedings authors to recognize at its 29th National Symposium in Crystal City, Virginia, 10-12 January. Captain George Galdorisi, U.S. Navy (Retired), will receive SNA’s Literary Award for his March 2016 article, “A Potent One-Two Punch.” Lieutenant Commander Ryan Hilger, U.S. Navy, will receive the Honorable Mention Award.
The Naval Institute will be at the SNA Symposium in force. In addition to having a booth on the exhibit floor with copies of new Naval Institute Press books and copies of Proceedings and Naval History, many Naval Institute staff members from CEO retired Navy Vice Admiral Pete Daly to Proceedings editors, USNI News reporters, and Press editors will attend.
