ABSTRACT
The article presents the views of several navy officers on higher education in the military. Mike Pavelec, Associate Professor of Strategic Studies, School of Advanced Air and Space Studies, said that there is indeed an important need for education in the 21st-century officer corps. Retired navy officer F. Clinton Kelley said that the chief selection boards need to evaluate time afloat and professional development within ratings at least as much as they do academic performance.
