Gratitude and Appreciation

Gratitude and appreciation are virtues every Naval officer should cultivate. Yet gratitude and appreciation mean nothing if you haven’t mastered the art of expressing it. An officer should use every opportunity to express to those around him how much he appreciates their work, support, and generosity.

One of the key ways of expressing gratitude and appreciation is the hand-written note. Unfortunately, many officers today completely overlook this aspect of etiquette. Every officer should be knowledgeable of the when’s and how’s of hand writing. Being a frequent and skillful writer of them will set you apart from your uncouth peers.
