Captain Lambert,

As a retired Navyman I would like to point out that you are on course in meeting your goal of one article per day for this year. Your articles are always of interest, and even though full agreement by all is not guaranteed, each article brings thought and stimulation to one such as myself. Keep up the good work.

Very Respectfully,

With great respect.
