SORT BY Relevancy
ADM Measurement Committee May Meeting Evening Session.
One of the most distinguished and respected American military officers of the 21st century has been Adm. James Stavridis, USN (Ret.). Today the Dean of the Fletcher School at Tufts University, Adm. Stavridis had an incomparable career in the United States Navy as a surface warfare officer, military staff member, and regional combatant commander. He has also developed an impressive reputation as a military writer and commentator, particularly in the pages of U.S. Naval Institute (USNI) Proceedings, throughout his career and into the present day. In nearly four decades of uninterrupted military service, Adm. Stavridis accumulated a service record that is the very definition of honor and leadership to the United States of America and the world.
And this week, Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writrstream Radio Network (@Writestream)) host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) is this week proud and honored to air an interview with USNI Press (@USNIBooks) author Adm. James Stavridis, USN (Ret.). In a recently recorded interview, Mr. Gresham and Adm. Stavridis discussed a wide variety of topics, from his early days of military service, to his professional writings and use of social media, as well as his wide-ranging responsibilities as regional combatant commander of both US Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) and US European Command (EUCOM). Please tune in on Monday, March 16th, at 1 PM EDT for an intriguing interview with one of the most interesting military commanders of our time.
On this Friday morning edition we're talking with Adm. James "Ace" Lyons (US Navy Ret.) about the President's radical extremism conference, ISIS, the MB penetration of all our federal agencies and the impact on our policies and strategy. We'll get his take on the Benghazi tragedy, and what he expects will come out of Congressman Trey Gowdy's Select Committee charged with investigating it. Adm. Lyons has speculated the death of Amb. Stevens resulted from a bungled attempt to have him kidnapped by Ansar al-Sharia to facilitate a prisoner exchange resulting in the release of Omar Abdel-Rahman.
We'll get his views on Iran's nuclear program and his participation in the recent Center for Security Policy's Defeat Jihad Summit.
James Aloysius "Ace" Lyons, Jr. is a retired Admiral who served as Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet from 1985-87. He served in the Navy for 36 years, including as Sr. US Military Representative to the UN and Dep. Chief of Naval Operations.
He's a graduate of the US Naval Academy and received post grad degrees from the US Naval War College and the US National Defense University. He is the CEO of LION Associates.
Lyons has claimed the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated every US security agency under the Obama presidency and alleges that John Brennan, Director of the CIA, was a Muslim convert. Lyons alleges that the MB is planning to start a political party to influence American domestic politics.
We are frmly in the middle of the 2nd decade of the 21st Century. What path were we put on at the start 21st Century that got us here? How do we evaluate the right decisions, the neutral decisions, and the less than optimal calls of the last decade and a half? What lessons can we take away now in order to make decisions to best position the Navy on the approaches to 2030?
Our guest for the full hour this Sunday to discuss this an much more will be Admiral John C. Harvey, Jr, USN (Ret).
Almost a year since he joined the retired ranks, when in uniform Admiral Harvey was one of the of the more engaged, visible, and accessible Flag Officers of his generation - and in retirement he continues to be an influential voice.
Admiral Harvey was born and raised in Baltimore, MD and is a 1973 graduate of the U S Naval Academy.
In his thirty-nine year Navy career, he specialized in naval nuclear propulsion, surface ship and carrier strike-group operations and Navy-wide manpower management/personnel policy development.
He commanded the USS DAVID R RAY (DD 971), the USS CAPE ST GEORGE (CG 71), the THEODORE ROOSEVELT Strike Group/CCDG-8 and also served as the Navy’s 54th Chief of Naval Personnel and as the Director, Navy Staff.

Of all the human qualities that are desired by people here in America and around the world right now, there can be little doubt or question that leadership is at the top of that list. Diluted by decades of indifference and mediocrity since the days of the "Greatest Generation" that fought in World War II, leadership as become a quality as rare as 100-carat diamonds and honest politicians. Nevertheless, those of us with long memories do recall touchstone individuals who not only made a difference in their time, but changed the very world they were part of forever. One of these was a somewhat gnomish and often disliked naval officer who created a whole new technology and era literally through the force of his own will: Adm. Hyman G. Rickover, USN.
Today, Rickover remains something of an enigma to military historians and analysts almost 3 decades after his death. Arguably one of the most brilliant and powerful naval officers of his day, he never commanded great ships and fleets in battle. Able to make other officers and politicians sweat and fear for their professional lives, his actual job for most of his career was to build engines for submarines and surface ships. And while his nuclear engines changed the history of the world, at no time did he ever command a ship powered by one. To learn more about this important figure in U.S. history, join author, historian, journalist, game designer, and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@Greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EDT. His guest this week will be U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNI_Books) author and career submariner RADM Dave Oliver, USN (Ret.). Oliver is the author of the new book AGAINST THE TIDE, a biographical study of Rickover and his unique leadership and management styles.
In 2013, Benjamin F. "BJ" Armstrong, a career naval officer and aviator, wrote/edited the book 21ST CENTURY MAHAN, published by the U.S. Naval Institute Press (USNI Press – @USNIBooks). Widely reviewed and extremely well received, the book was based upon the premise that the ideas presented in the writings of American seapower theorist Alfred Thayer Mahan were still relevant in the 21st century, more than a century after the publication of his seminal work, THE INFLUANCE OF SEAPOWER UPON HISTORY. Armstrongs book revived a lively discussion about the relevance and merits of seapower in the present day, and the idea that the tenets Mahan put forth in the late 1800s, were still relevant in a world being defined by new technologies and emerging world powers.
Now, in 2015, Armstrong has published a new book in what has become USNI Press's emerging "21st Century" series of books with 21ST CENTURY SIMS, based upon the career and writings of Adm. William Sims. A true among the naval leaders of the early 20th century, Sims is less well known for his vast published works on naval leadership, particularly as they apply to junior officers. Now Mr. Armstrong has collected and edited them, in a compact work that provides new insights into this fascinating military personality from a century ago.
This week, Benjamin Armstrong joins author, historian, journalist, and documentary filmmaker John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) on Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) to talk about his new book, along with his editorship of the new "21st Century" book series for USNI Press. This should be a lively hour of history, books, and publishing, and listeners are invited to call in and discuss their ideas and questions with both gentlemen.
