FROM A LITERARY AWARD WINNER
17 October 2000
Dear Vice Admiral Cooper:
I can honestly say that I was in a state of disbelief when I was told that I was awarded the Active Duty Literary Award at the Annual Symposium. In any case, I am honored that the Naval Submarine League recognized my essay; I feel strongly about the state of information technology onboard current and future submarines and I wanted to share those feelings.
I recognize that there will be many future discussions in this area and I hope that my essay is able to further the dialogue. I have noticed that it has received some response in your quarterly publication.
In my opinion, the Naval Submarine League is doing superb work in expanding the horizons of junior officers; however, there is still a long way to go. I truly enjoy THE SUBMARINE REVIEW, especially the articles from the junior officers-the more articles we receive from young officers the better our future Submarine Force will be.
Best wishes for the continued success of the NSL.
REQUEST FOR INFO RE: VADM LOCKWOOD
I am starting a project about Vice Admiral Charles A. Lock-wood, COMSUBPAC and am seeking information about the admiral during World War II. I am especially interested in personal reminiscences, and would also like to contact surviving members of Lockwood’s wartime staff. Steven T.
