By Admiral James G. Stavridis, U.S. Navy (Retired)
“Admiral Stavridis knows the sea firsthand, has mastered maritime history, and always conveys its importance in a most compelling way. This collection charts a wonderful course for all who already share his passion for the sea and those ashore who wish to embrace the majesty of the oceans. Get underway and enjoy! You’ll be glad you did.”

Sponsored Student Program
For the past eight years, the Naval Institute’s Sponsored Student Program has been a way for past and present Sea Service leaders to bring Proceedings and other benefits of membership to midshipmen and cadets. Sponsors donate student memberships in the Institute to current students, and many choose to sponsor their old Academy companies or NROTC units. Students can choose print-and-digital or digital-only memberships and immediately start receiving Proceedings. They also gain access to every issue of Proceedings dating back to 1874—fully digitized and searchable. If the Naval Institute was important to your success as a Navy, Marine Corps, or Coast Guard professional, consider sponsoring the young leaders in your company or unit today.
