Conference Proceeding
In October, both the U.S. Naval Institute and the U.S. Navy commemorate their birthdays. For the Naval Institute, it is 130th year serving the nation, its armed services and service members and the citizenry. With the capability and future of the Navy in question in the post-Civil War era, a group of 15 officers gathered on October 9, 1873 at the Naval Academy for the first meeting for this professional association, which has since provided an open forum to advance the understanding of sea power and other issues critical to national security.
