One (military) celebrity followed by another one – something you get only with Sea Control. In this Episode A. Denis Clift, former Naval Officer, president emeritus of the National Intelligence University, and Vice President for Operations of the U.S. Naval Institute (USNI), joins Matthew Hipple. As a veteran of two Antarctic expeditions in 1960/61 and as senior member of the U.S. National Security Council staff for the Soviet Union and Europe (1974-77), Clift reflects on his time in the Antarctic, Cold War intelligence, life, and the United States Naval Institute. This is the first of a bi-monthly series that will be investigating his career during the Cold War.
