"I believe there are a handful of fundamental principles that, when followed, can lead to success in the intelligence profession. These principles, I believe, apply to all members of our business, regardless of Service, specialty, personal or professional background and skills, paygrade, position or seniority.

What are the fundamentals? They are:
  • professional competence,
  • relevance,
  • dedication,
  • sense of urgency,
  • attention to detail,
  • leadership and
  • maintaining the highest ethical standards."

Vice Admiral Jack Dorsett
Director of Naval Intelligence (OPNAV N2)

Captain Lambert,

These same basic principles should be applicable to all occupations and endeavors.

Very Respectfully,
