The First Component of Naval Leadership - PERSONAL EXAMPLE
According to an Army officer who had frequent contact with him: "the commodore was blunt, yet dignified... heavy and not graceful...held in awe by the junior officers and having little to do with them, seriously courteous to others... The ship seemed to have a sense of importance because he was on board."
