Motivating Sailors can be a formidable leadership challenge. To be effective, our Navy requires cohesiveness, a sense of community. Liberalizing the Navy does not help our Sailors or our Navy.
The Navy needs a unique set of values to be effective. These include Honor, Courage, Commitment - discipline, obedience, integrity, a high order of technical excellence in military skills, and dedication to a well-defined purpose—defense of the country.
No one need remind us that the mission of the Navy remains "Conduct sustained combat operations at sea."
