NNOA’s Response to the Global Crisis

NNOA’s Response to the Global Crisis

Dear NNOA Shipmates,

I hope this note finds you and your families well.  I don’t need to reiterate the difficulties of our current crisis across the planet as we are all getting a constant feed on traditional and social media.  We have a senior living with us so we are being particularly cautious to follow the CDC guidance and I hope you are doing the same.  Our nation and world will come out of this situation by each of us doing our part.  I want to give a personal BRAVO ZULU to all on the front lines of this crisis in our medical community.  You and your families are TRUE HEROES and we are all benefiting from your great courage in facing COVID-19.

PAUL NITZE, GRAND STRATEGY, AND THE UNITED STATES NAVY

Fifteen years ago today (March 5, 2005), the USS Nitze (DDG-94) was commissioned. An Arleigh Burke-class destroyer, Nitze has deployed many times in her service history, and was involved in a confrontation with Iranian vessels in August of 2016.

She was named for former Secretary of the Navy Paul Nitze – Nitze served in this capacity under President Lyndon Johnson from 1963 to 1967, and for nearly forty years was one of the chief architects of the United States strategy in the Cold War, in addition to serving as Director of Policy Planning at the Department of State and Deputy Secretary of Defense.
