In 2004, Admiral James Holloway III and the Naval Historical Foundation (NHF) hosted a symposium on the 60th anniversary of the largest naval battle in history. Fifteen years later the Naval Historical Foundation returns to the historic Decatur House, formerly the Truxtun-Decatur Naval Museum, to host The Battle of Leyte Gulf 75th Anniversary Symposium. The symposium will take place on October 25th, the anniversary of the Battle of Surigao Strait and Battle Off Samar-- "The last stand of the Tin Can Sailors."
The symposium begins at 8:30 AM with a light breakfast buffet. Following introduction from Naval Historical Foundation leadership, the symposium will begin with an overview from LCdr. Thomas J. Cutler, USN (Ret.), of the U. S. Naval Institute and a TBD Keynote. The second half of the morning will consist of a panel discussion and the opportunity for audience questions. The panel, moderated by Dr. David Rosenberg of the Institute for Defense Analysis and NHF board member, will include preeminent naval historians and World War II experts. After a break and closing remarks, the event will conclude at noon.
