Make history or write it? Why not both?

"“Naval officers prefer to make history rather than write it—because of which preference they probably do a better job of the former.”
— Admiral Ernest J. King 1942 quoted in Naval War College Review.

And then, there are those Naval officers who are eminently qualified to do both - Admiral James Stavridis - historian and history maker.
