Dale Jenkins’ fascination with international affairs, history and the Navy has been a life-long endeavor. He is a former U.S. Navy officer who served on a destroyer in the Pacific, and for a time was home-ported in Yokosuka, Japan. Pacific Fleet commitments took him to the Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore. While on active duty, he was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Expeditionary Medal. After the Navy, Jenkins began a career in international banking and as a staff director at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York.
Jenkins currently serves on the Samuel Eliot Morison Committee of the Naval Order of the United States, New York, and as a Regional Director of the Naval War College Foundation. As a result of his active duty experience and new revelations, Dale provides insights into the diplomacy and strategies of the Pacific region. He has degrees in history and business from Harvard and Columbia University.
