Currently, there are two military schools in the city of Monterey, CA. The Defense Language Institute/Foreign Language Center is located aboard the Presidio of Monterey, and is one of the best foreign language schools in the country. The campus of the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) is found about 3 miles southeast of the Presidio. NPS is a fully accredited graduate education program granting master’s, engineer’s and doctoral degrees to military officers. Inspired by the peacocks that are known to roam the area, our charm is a .925 sterling silver peacock with green and blue gems. “Monterey CA” is inscribed on the back.
