Men and women with drive, determination, courage and talent.
Men and women of honor.
Sailors who can withstand the toughest environments and who thrive in the arena with the toughest challenges.
Sailors who are devoted to the professional development and well-being of their Shipmates.
Sailors for whom it is the content of their character that matters, and not the color of their skin.
Admiral John Harvey
Commander, Fleet Forces Command
Let's hope we can bring the rest of Navy leadership on board with Admiral Harvey's thinking and concentrate on character and not color when we are recruiting men and women for Naval service. It may be too much to hope for.
