The Olmsted Foundation Shaping Future Leaders Statement of Donor
The United States is one of the major forces in the world today. As a consequence, its military leaders come into contact with citizens and military leaders of many nations.

Relationships between nations require a unique consideration of many factors including political, economic and military, among others. It is not enough to know one’s own strengths, weaknesses, and general characteristics. The solutions of difficulties that arise between nations require a knowledge and depth of understanding of the particular nations involved. To this end, The George and Carol Olms

Sea Stories: Humor & Life Lessons From a 40-Year Navy Journey

Former Olmsted Foundation Chairman, VADM Doug Crowder, USN (Ret,) who studied at the University of Lausanne as a member of the Olmsted Class of 1980, has published Sea Stories: Humor and Life Lessons From a 40-Year Navy Journey. This is not a retired flag officer autobiography of great deeds accomplished. Rather it’s a celebration of the fun, adventure, and camaraderie shared during our military careers in balance with the frequent hardships, sacrifices, and long separations. The book contains 91, two to three-page vignettes that track the chronological path of his career. Included among those 91 stories are about a half dozen stories about VADM Crowder’s Olmsted experience in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Sea Stories: Humor and Life Lessons from a 40-Year Navy Journey has received very positive reviews. Former NATO Supreme Allied commander, ADM James Stavridis, USN (Ret.) described it as “an incredible book of leadership, but also deeply humorous, honest, and insightful.” Other readers have described it as a book that “is not only humorous, but also imparts important lessons in leadership, kindness, generosity, and mischievousness.”

Olmsted Scholar Colonel Michael Hopkins, who studied at the University of Parma in Italy as a member of the Olmsted Scholar Class of 2003, has now reached the International Space Station for the second time! Colonel Hopkins has recounted that "the Olmsted experience helped create a foundation of understanding and insight that served me well as I went on my mission to the International Space Station with an international crew of diverse backgrounds." We are proud that he will be able to apply those insights gained from this leadership development program once more during his second mission at the International Space Station.
