Are you making any difference at all?
Summer is usually the time for some turnover at a several of our Navy Information Operations Commands at home and abroad. This is a good time to go back and review what your command, your Sailors and you have achieved over these past few years.
How have you helped your Sailors get to the next level in their careers? What significant improvements have you made in mission accomplishment? Did you behave as if Sailors were our Navy's most important asset? What specific actions did you take to improve the Quality of Life for them and their families? What genuine legacy do you leave behind? What bridges have you built to the command's future? How many Sailors have you helped achieve their personal/professional goals? In the end, what difference have you made?
I hope you can answer these questions to your own satisfaction when one of our Flag officers pins on a Meritorious Service Medal or Legion of Merit on your chest and tells "All Hands assembled" what a great man/woman you are. Be the great man/woman that you are said to be.
