Musings, leadership tidbits and quotes posted by a retired Navy Captain (really just a high performing 2nd Class Petty Officer) who hung up his uniform a bit too early. He still wears his Navy service on his sleeve. He needs to get over that. "ADVANCE WARNING - NO ORIGINAL THOUGHT!" A "self-appointed" lead EVANGELIST for the "cryptologic community". Keeping CRYPTOLOGY alive-one day and Sailor at a time. 2015 is 80th Anniversary of the Naval Security Group.

... you can liken seapower to the human hand where with great delicacy, sensitivity, and perception it can be used to solve the combination of the lock on a safe, or the skilled hand of a surgeon who, with the greatest delicacy, can excise the cancerous growth from the human body, or again, it can be clenched in the fist representing the brute force philosophy of an all-out exchange.
Rear Admiral John Sidney McCain, Jr. on Capitol Hill 12 April 1962
