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.

Next USMC Commandant
Discussion has already begun about who fill follow General Conway as the next Commandant of the United States Marine Corps. Let us pray that the individual selected will have the same level of moral courage that General Conway possesses. Though I spent more than 30 years in a Navy uniform, I believe that the USMC is the most cherished institution in the United States - and with good reason. Let's not toy with the closest thing we have to perfection in the military.
As Thomas Jefferson said, "On matters of style, swim with the current; on matters of principle, stand like a rock." Stand like a rock, General. Stand like a rock.
