Next Issue: Summer 2022 #157 "Lethality through Learning"

Last month, CNO Gilday released an update to the CNO Professional Reading Program. With this release, ADM Gilday emphasized the importance of learning and self-improvement within the Navy.  "A learning mindset," he said, "is essential to accelerating our warfighting advantage. A Navy that learns, adapts, and improves the fastest will be the most successful. Knowledge sharing is essential to creating a learning culture." 

With CNO's words in mind, the theme of RR 157 is "Lethality through Learning." Based on the conversations that took place at this spring's Symposium, it is clear to our staff members that our Rotary Force is currently evolving to meet the demands of a new battlespace. The requirement to adapt to changing environments and missions is a constant in our community and our Navy. This demand requires a learning mindset in our force, now more than ever. If you've got something to say on the topic, please consider submitting a piece of your own to the magazine. The deadline for submissions is 08-Jul-22.
