About the Author

Formerly commander of the U.S. Second Fleet and NATO striking forces in the Atlantic as well as the U.S. Sixth Fleet and NATO striking forces in the Mediterranean, Jerry Miller retired from the U.S. Navy in 1974. He spent most of his thirty-eight-year career as a fixed-wing pilot, seeing surface combat in a cruiser in the Pacific during World War II, becoming a fighter pilot and a commander of a fighter squadron during the Korean War, and commanding a carrier division during the Vietnam War. Since his retirement from active duty, Miller has used his extensive Navy experience in nuclear weapons targeting and delivery to serve as a national security consultant on arms control.
