Digital-media entrepreneur and author Christopher P. Michel of San Francisco has agreed to underwrite Institute memberships for midshipmen in the NROTC unit at the University of Illinois for the next several years.  A former naval flight officer, Chris received his commission through this program upon graduation in 1990.  “Reading Proceedings as a midshipman helped ignite my passion in the Navy,” he says.  “I think every mid would benefit from being an active member of the Naval Institute from day one.  In a very real sense, all Sailors are members of a professional community . . . and USNI membership is the best way to engage with our profession."
