SALT and the Navy
To most Americans, MAD is a magazine and MIRV is the
first name of a talk-show host. But SALTalkers—both U. S. and Soviet—know that the U. S. Navy is both MAD and MIRV.
By Lieutenant James L. George. USN (Ret.)
The Drift Toward the Draft
The All-Volunteer Force's worst enemies won't call it a total failure, and its firmest friends won't call it an unqualified success. Isn't that what was being said about the Draft when they abolished it in 1973?
By Lieutenant Colonel Henry J. Sage, USMC
The All-Volunteer Force in 1798
Back in the days when 74 men were crammed into a 56-foot vessel, there were more deaths from "an old sore leg," "the fleux," and "mysterious fevers" than from enemy action.
By Lieutenant Daniel W. Wood. USCGR
Andrew Irwin McKee: Naval Constructor
No man did more than he to make the pig-boat safe for her crew, a scourge to her enemies, and the sleepless sentry she has become today. But his talents were by no means limited to submarines. By Commander John D. Alden, USN (Ret.)
Countering Soviet Imperialism
Soviet hegemony over Eurafrica can best be thwarted by naval forces which are capable of controlling the seas, thrusting Marines onto hostile shores, and supporting them as long as necessary.
By Colonel Joseph E. Hopkins. USMC. and
Lieutenant Colonel W. R. Warren. USMC
Warships Should Look Warlike 66
Warships between wars, like middle linebackers between plays, ought to ooze intimidation. For some reason, our modern ships don't look menacing. Soviet warships do.
By Lieutenant John C. Roach, USNR. and
Herbert A. Meier
To be effective against Soviet expansion, our amphibious forces must be both capable and ubiquitous, as posited in the article beginning on page 58. In this painting by Dante H. Bertoni, a CH-53 Sea Stallion is seen on board the USS New Orleans (LPH-11), in Subic Bay in the Philippines. (Courtesy of Navy Combat Art Collection.)
