See it through

"Few things are more vital to an organization than young officers and leaders who have the moral courage to help shape the direction in which the organization is headed, and then the strength of character to see it through."

The last few words of this quote remind me something ADM Hyman G. Rickover once said: "Good ideas are not adopted automatically. They must be driven into practice with courageous impatience."

Let's Go Nuke Navy!!!

Ensign Rogers,

I like the way your take ownership for your opinion. Putting your name to your words is important.

I do hope that you have looked back on what you posted on this blog in reference to Ens. Rogers and his owning his words by posting his name. Why did you not do the same?

Having spent a few years with Nukes (7 patrols on an SSBN) and finding them having superior intellect in their field of endeavor and a few other things, I also found it dumfounding that I was unable to teach them not to walk on a wet deck.

Very Respectfully,
