CEO Notes

Judged in the blind, Naval Institute essay contests represent the finest thinking about the Sea Services and are a true meritocracy of ideas.

The U.S. Naval Institute is a private, self-supporting, not-for-profit professional society that publishes Proceedings as part of the open forum it maintains for the Sea Services. The Naval Institute is not an agency of the U.S. government; the opinions expressed in these pages are the personal views of the authors.
