Presenter: Robert Clark, President of Wesley College and former Commandant of Midshipman at the U.S. Naval Academy
Submarine Operations during World War II were some of the most dangerous and clandestine operations of the war, providing warfare commanders with unmatched capability in anti-shipping, mining, insertion/support of Special Forces, intelligence & warning, search & recovery, anti-submarine warfare, and reconnaissance that helped turn the tide of the war in the Atlantic and Pacific. President Clark will present on the history of the U.S. Submarine Force during World War II and reflect on how the lessons learned almost 80 years ago are still applied today and are the foundation of our current submarine force culture.
