Just returned from the Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC) in Washington, DC. Located in the Washington Navy Yard, the NHHC’s mission priorities are to (a) serve as the institutional memory of the U.S. Navy, (b) discern and document lessons learned from naval military history, and (c) locate and protect lost U.S. Navy ships and aircraft. NHHC retained WashU at Brookings to provide instruction on conflict resolution to their senior executives. The instructor retained for this purpose was Paul Paese, of PMC. Paul thoroughly enjoyed the experience and came away with a deeper appreciation of what “commitment to mission” really means and how much our populace owes to the men and women in career-long military service.
