I want to share with you an article from the ANCHORWATCH that was written by my current Skipper at NIOC MD, Captain Ashworth. After 25 years of Navy, Captain Ashworth is scheduled to retire on September 30, 2011. I am convinced that any attempt to describe his character will fall short of reality. Therefore, I submit to you his outgoing message to the NIOC MD family, an authentic depiction of his extraordinary leadership, absolute selflessness, and above all, incredible ability to inspire those under his command.
