For Ensign Justin Rogers and Master Chief Hughes
"In each submarine there are men who, in the hour of emergency or peril at sea, can turn to each other. These men are ultimately responsible to themselves and each other for all aspects of operation of their submarine. They are the crew. They are the ship."
The Submariner's Creed (Excerpt)
May you become the kind of submariner that MCPO Hughes was. Our Navy always needs such men. I salute you both for your service and for your dialog on this blog. We are all still learning. Admiral Vern Clark used to tell us that when we stop learning, we stop living. Keep learning.
