Please join us for the 17th Annual James Bond Stockdale Symposium with keynote speaker 4-Star Admiral Harry B. Harris, Jr., Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet. 

Adm. Harris was born in Japan and raised in Tennessee and Florida. Following graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1978 and designation as a naval flight officer, he was assigned to VP-44. His subsequent operational tours have included tactical action officer aboard the USS Saratoga (CV 60); operations officer in VP-4 at Barbers Point, Hawaii; three tours with Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 1 at Kami Seya, Japan; and many others including Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 1, Joint Task Force-Guantanamo, the U.S. 6th Fleet, and Striking and Support Forces NATO.

Harris has served in every geographic combatant command region, most recently as the Assistant to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, where he served as the Chairman's direct representtive to the Secretary of State, and as the U.S. roadmap monitor for the Mid-East Peace Process. He attended Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, Georgetown's School of Foreign Service, and Oxford University. Admiral Harris' exemplary leadership at the highest levels of government exemplify the Stockdale legacy of ethical service with honor.
