Admiral Leo A. Edney (Ret.) is this year's speaker for the 14th annual James Bond Stockdale Leadership Symposium on Tuesday, Jan. 25 at the University of San Diego. The event takes place at 6:30 p.m. in USD's Shiley Theatre and is free and open to the public.

Edney will discuss "A Nation at War, The Common Defense." He served as NATO Supreme Allied Commander Atlantic from 1990 to 1992 and accumulated over 5600 flight hours, 350 combat missions and over 1,000 carrier landings in a naval career spanning 36 years.

The purpose of the Stockdale Symposium is to help attendees to understand some of the difficult moral and ethical issues facing military officers today. The late Admiral Stockdale, a Medal of Honor recipient, bore witness to the importance of studying, understanding and applying ethical principles to one's profession, and the conduct of one's life.

The symposium is hosted by the NROTC San Diego Battalion. For more information go to
