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.

Never retreat - never surrender
Lieutenant Commander Sean Kearns, former Executive Officer of USS SAN ANTONIO (LPD-17), took the ship's motto to heart in his fight to exonerate himself from Navy charges of "dereliction of duty" in the death of PO1 Ansong. The jury at the court-martial on Friday found Sean Kearns not guilty of negligence.
In LCDR Kearns' words, "Things needed to be made known.... Someone needed to stand up." Thanks Sean for making things known and for standing up. As the Salamander says - "great demonstration of morale courage."
