Last December the Naval War College lost two of its most distinguished and dedicated supporters, Adm. Richard G. Colbert and Rear Adm. Richard W. Bates. Each of these officers made an indelible imprint on our college. Each devoted a large measure of his life and endeavor to benefiting the college. We feel a deep Joss at no longer being able to turn to them for advice and support. We take great comfort in recognizing that what they accomplished for education at the Naval War College laid a foundation that will guide those who follow them for years to come. The next issue of the Review will carry articles on their con tri bu tions to the War College and excerpts from their writings.
