Naval War College Museum Blog: http://navalwarcollegemuseum.blogspot.com

On Sept. 20, 1884, Rear Adm. Stephen B. Luce, USN, was relieved as Commander, North Atlantic Squadron and was rowed from the flagship USS Tennessee anchored off Newport to Coasters Harbor Island, 2 miles north of the center of Newport. Once on the island, as the Army and Navy Journal reported, Luce proceeded to a large stone building built in 1819, the former Newport Asylum for the Poor, climbed its rickety steps, and as he put his hand on the front door, solemnly declared to his few companions and the empty grounds, “Know all men by these presents, and in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I christen this building the War College of the American Navy.” Two weeks later, on Oct. 6, 1884, Secretary of the Navy William Chandler issued General Order 325, formally establishing the Naval War College.

Today, the “little poorhouse” is a well-preserved and stately structure, a National Historic Landmark and home to the Naval War College Museum. Named Founders Hall in honor of the founding fathers of the college, it is uniquely suited for its current purpose. In addition to being the original home of the oldest war college in the United States, it is where Capt. Alfred Thayer Mahan, USN, the college’s president from 1886 through 1889 and 1892 through 1893, first delivered his lectures on sea power. These lectures, first published in 1890 as the epochal “The Influence of Sea Power upon History, 1660-1783,” were the first in a series of Mahan’s books that marked the beginning of modern naval strategic and historical studies. Today, the Naval War College Museum is one of 10 official U.S. Navy museums. It is operated under the Naval History and Heritage Command, Washington, D.C., in cooperation with the Naval War College.

Collection and Exhibit Themes

The museum’s themes are the history of naval warfare, particularly as studied at the college, and the naval heritage of Narragansett Bay — a tale that begins with the nation’s colonial roots. Its collection consists of items relating to these subjects that are perceived to be of value to scholarship, and these form the core for exhibits throughout the college and for educational outreach projects. Besides permanent exhibits about the college, the genesis of the Navy in the region and the evolution of permanent naval installations from the late 19th century to the present, the museum features short-term special exhibits relating to the college curriculum and to current naval-related topics. In general, the museum exhibits identify milestones in the evolutionary development of war at sea; explain the significance of the sea as a factor in the formulation and the attainment of national policy objectives; describe the character, educational philosophy and mission of the college; and chronicle the eventful relationship of the U.S. Navy with Narragansett Bay and its people.

Public access to the museum with a personal vehicle is through Gate 1 of U.S. Naval Station, Newport. For reservations, call 401-841-4052 at least five working days in advance. Reservations and two forms of government-issued identification are necessary to enter the Naval Station for those without Department of Defense identification. Foreign nationals require two weeks’ advance notification. Visitors must stop at the Pass Office before proceeding to Gate 1.

Facilities for the disabled are available, as is a gift shop operated by the Naval War College Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that supports the Museum as part of its many activities to buttress the Naval War College. Further information about the museum’s exhibits, special events and its naval history book lecture series may be found on the museum’s website at www.usnwc.edu/museum, on its Facebook page, and on the Naval War College Museum blog at http://navalwarcollegemuseum.blogspot.com.

The NS Newport installation school liaison officer serves as the installation subject-matter expert for youth education, transition, K-12 school years and deployment issues. The officer’s role includes seven core duties, which include communication (installation, community and school), school transition services, special education system navigation, deployment support, partnerships in education, home school linkage and support, and postsecondary presentation.

If you are a military family with school-age children, moving can be complicated by the unknown factors related to the schools in the area of your new duty station. In order to prepare for a smooth transition, it is essential that you plan ahead and gather the necessary information about the schools your children will be attending during the next academic year before you arrive at your new home.

At NS Newport, Pamela Martin, the school liaison officer, is available to help you navigate the local educational system while undergoing a PCS move. She can also help you prepare for your next move by putting you in contact with the school liaison officer at your new duty station.

Assistance from the community plays a major role in helping the naval station’s Security Department. Suspicious activity should be reported to the police dispatcher immediately, and emergencies via 911. Individuals are encouraged to report anything out of the ordinary and may remain anonymous. The naval station’s police force is a full-service law enforcement agency that maintains close ties with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. Federal police officers attend the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and maintain 24-hour daily patrols of the installation, tenant commands and surrounding federal property. Police patrol officers enforce all laws and regulations, including United States Code, the UCMJ, assimilated Rhode Island law and applicable instructions. They ensure the integrity of installation access points, offer assistance to those in need and proactively serve to detect, deter and defend against terrorist activity. Detectives are on staff to investigate criminal activity and liaise with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. The coordinated efforts of all divisions and branches of the Security Department ensure protection and service to our community. The security director and operations officer are responsible for maintaining the quality, professionalism and training of personnel and provide a link from the public to the commanding officer, as well as gather data and identify trends of criminal and security concerns so station law enforcement and security resources are utilized to their maximum potential.

The U.S. Army veterinary clinic at NS Newport is in the rear of the Leisure Bay Coffee Shoppe. The station’s veterinary treatment facility is professionally staffed by Army Veterinary Corps personnel with the primary mission of providing complete veterinary care for all government owned animals. Staff understands how important your pet is to you, and with that in mind, offers many types of routine care services for the pets of military families. For availability of services or to schedule an appointment, call the facility. Due to limited manpower and resources, most veterinary emergency cases are best served through a full-service civilian veterinary hospital.

All pets living on post must be registered with the facility upon arrival. On-post housing may limit the number and breed of pets that can live in on-post housing. Contact on-post housing for more information.

Newport county code §6.04.070 states that “the owner of any dog over the age of 6 months shall have such dog vaccinated against rabies.” Please check with your local county for compliance with registering your pets and other regulations.
