First SEAL takes helm as Naval War College president


Story by Lindsay Church

Change of command NEWPORT, R.I. – Rear Adm. P. Gardner Howe III relieved Rear Adm. Walter E. “Ted” Carter Jr., as the 55th president and first Navy SEAL in command of the U.S. Naval War College (NWC) in Newport, Rhode Island, during a change of command ceremony with the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Jonathan Greenert, July 8.

“I am very happy with the job [Carter] has done here,” said Greenert. “He has refined the curriculum and moved it in a direction that is refocused towards the fleet.”

During the ceremony, Greenert noted Carter’s accomplishments in completing the initial phases of the Naval Leadership Continuum, establishing the Navy Leadership and Ethics Center, and examining the future naval war at sea.

“Carter was the right leader at the right place at the right time,” said Greenert. “Thank you for setting the stage for future analysis, for future planning, and for future development. We’ll deep dive into the war at sea, Gardner will take it from here.”

Carter departs the NWC following his appointment to vice admiral and assignment as superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.

“Today I relinquish the most significant assignment of my career,” said Carter. “This past weekend I came back here to the hallways of the NWC. There was nobody here and I just wanted to walk through and soak in the flavor of the NWC.

“I reflected on the naval giants who have come before me. Their portraits are hanging all over the campus here – such history, such passion, and such success in shaping the Navy’s future.”

Carter, a Rhode Island native, took command of NWC as the 54th president and first naval flight officer in history to hold the position. While appointed as president, he refined the college’s educational and research programs and worked to reconnect NWC with the fleet.

“For the first time in the 130 year history of the NWC, this institution will be led by a member of the naval special warfare community, better known as the SEALs. Their motto is; Ready to lead, ready to follow, never quit, the only easy day was yesterday,” said Carter. “Rear Adm. Howe, I am sure you are ready to lead, and the last 12-months have shown me that every member of this remarkable command is ready to follow, and they will never quit.”

Howe, a U.S. Naval Academy, Naval Postgraduate School and National War College graduate, holds dual Master of Arts degrees in national security and reports from his most recent assignment as commander of Special Operations Command, Pacific.

“I am incredibly humbled, honored and excited to be standing in front of you as the 55th president of the NWC,” said Howe. “Rear Adm. Carter, thank you for your stalwart leadership over the last year at the NWC, the Navy’s home of strategic thought. A son of Rhode Island and clearly a rising star in the Navy, you have advanced this institution with intellectual initiative and relevance, and as you promised last year, you have respected, protected and promoted the institution.”
