In assuming the helm of the Naval War College from Vice Admiral Jim Stockdale, I have done so with a great sense of privilege and a great awareness of the responsibilities I have undertaken. It is my earnest hope that my stewardship will measure up to the high standards my predecessors have established and maintained over the long history of this fine institution.
