Join U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Bruce Gillingham for “Being There Matters,” highlighting the Navy’s around-the-clock, around-the-globe attitude as it pertains to maintaining free and open sea lanes throughout the world. Learn what the Navy is doing and how that relates back to given areas of the United States. Given that 70 percent of the earth is covered by water, 80 percent of the world’s population lives near water, 90 percent of all global commerce travels on the water, and 95 percent of all information travels under the water, Admiral Cunningham will describe how the Navy takes those statistics to heart. RSVP required.
