Former Secretary of the Navy John H. Dalton has written a new memoir called “At the Helm: My Journey with Family, Faith, and Friends to Calm the Storms of Life.” Dalton is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy who served as a Navy submariner much like another USNA graduate, President Jimmy Carter. Dalton is also an emeritus member of the White House Historical Association's Board of Directors. Stewart McLaurin, President of the White House Historical Association, spoke with Dalton about working for the Carter administration and his family’s longtime friendship with the Carters, what is was like to be asked by the Clinton administration to serve as the 70th Secretary of the Navy, and how his faith and close relationships got him through the ebb and flow of life.
