This year’s TRA Gala Dinner and Symposium will be held at Long Island University’s C.W. Post Campus and the Glen Cove Mansion near Sagamore Hill on October 26th.  The overall theme of the event is Theodore Roosevelt and the Navy.”  At the Symposium we will have speakers discussing the long history of TR and the Navy and how he fundamentally changed this institution into a key element in the rise of the U.S. as a world power and looking at the modern Navy, focusing on “Our Ship”, USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71).  There will be a world premiere of a new film about Theodore Roosevelt. We’ll have a famous artist and LIU professor who will show many of his original TR portraits and discuss “TR in Art”.  At the Gala Dinner our Medal of Honor Awardee and Keynote speaker will be Admiral James G. Stavridis, former Supreme Allied Commander of Europe and one of our most respected military officers, He is one of America’s leading strategist and his keynote address will be both interesting and important.
