What the Navy needs now more than ever

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.

Captain Lambert.

I read this post with much interest and I am afraid that with the attitude of most of his superiors Admiral Harvey’s words will have little effect on how the Navy progresses from this point on. The die has been cast as the saying goes and the Admiral seems to appear not in favor of some of the molds. But I expect he will lose, I am in favor of what he states but my opinion is nothing.

Very Respectfully,
