Public History and Education

The mission of the Public History and Education Team is to educate the public about U.S. Naval history and the Navy’s contribution to America’s military and diplomatic engagements, education, and culture. The team of Naval Historians that comprise this Team  focus on meeting the command’s strategic goal to:

  • More fully integrate the NHHC organization and enhance synchronization between divisions and the command’s moral and practical obligations and honor those fallen in battle or lost at sea by telling their story to the widest possible audience.
  • Preserve, commemorate, and share the service, sacrifice, and legacy of our Sailors from the inception of the Navy to the present day.
  • Foster the continuing support of the American people essential to a strong future Navy.
  • Inform the American people of the benefit that their investment in the U.S. Navy has made to their lives and instill awareness and pride in the Navy’s past accomplishments

The Public History and Education Team collaborates with NHHC and other entities to educate various audiences on U.S. Naval history and heritage. This section helps to shape and define NHHC historical commemorative priorities by selecting dates, themes, and events that should be commemorated, and developing long-range schedules that lay out major historical events to shape NHHC outreach and messaging. Some products of the Public History and Education Team include:

  • Anchor Date Support
  • Oral Histories
  • Navy Museum Support
