Some many years ago I served as a Defense Attorney for a Shipmate during Chief Petty Officer's initiation in Monterey, California. It was my privilege to be there and I was honored that the Chiefs Mess allowed my limited participation. I was a Lieutenant at the time and it was my seventh Chiefs' initiation. For some reason my performance as Defense Attorney never improved, despite the years of experience. Like the selectees, I went in afraid each time. Those were some truly remarkable men - those Navy Chiefs.
