Every issue of Proceedings addresses issues relevant to Naval Aviation, but each September we dedicate extra coverage. This month, in addition to features, the departments cover a range of aviation topics. The “Nobody Asked Me, But…” suggests the Marines scrap their Hornets, and a “Professional Note” proposes HH-60Rs can fill a hole in distributed lethality.
In addition to aviation coverage, the winning essay in the rising historian category of the CNO Naval History Essay Contest is published on pages 64-68. An active-duty lieutenant uses historical case studies to highlight shortfalls in the Navy’s peacetime readiness posture.
