10 Reasons I've Enjoyed Posting To This Blog Over The Past Year

In no particular order.

1.  It allowed me to engage with a wonderful author and to write the Chapter 1 opening vignette for a Wall Street Journal/Amazon best-selling business book.  Dr. Stephen Covey and Bono 'open' for me.
2.  It gave me the opportunity to help a Pulitzer prize winning author with research for his story on The SeaWitch in TIME magazine.
3.  It has allowed me to remain connected to the Navy's cryptologic community, which I love.
4.  It earned me an invite to speak at a Women In Defense forum and to contribute ideas to numerous professional publications.
5.  It has allowed others to freely express their frustrations on a variety of topics important to them.
6.  It allowed me to expand the network of Sailors of all paygrades that I mentor and with whom I share lessons learned.
7.  It allowed me to collaborate with the former CNO on avenues to gain recognition of the Navy as a TOP 50 Employer in the United States.
8.  It allowed me to keep alive the memory of some stellar Sailors.
9.  It has allowed me to write everyday, which I love.
10.  It has connected me to some great Navy veterans and many others who proudly serve today.

Captain Lambert,

It is apparent to me that you have given 10 good reasons for your generation of “I LIKE THE CUT OF HIS JIB”. In these days of hate and venom that can be spread at will by anyone and everyone on the internet your posts are always as advertised, “Musings, leadership tidbits and quotes posted by a retired Navy Captain”.

Very Respectfully,
