Musings, leadership tidbits and quotes posted by a retired Navy Captain (really just a high performing 2nd Class Petty Officer) who hung up his uniform a bit too early. He still wears his Navy service on his sleeve. He needs to get over that. "ADVANCE WARNING - NO ORIGINAL THOUGHT!" A "self-appointed" lead EVANGELIST for the "cryptologic community". Keeping CRYPTOLOGY alive-one day and Sailor at a time. 2015 is 80th Anniversary of the Naval Security Group.

USS BENFOLD RETURNS TO EXCELLENCE
Once regarded as the finest ship in the Pacific Fleet (1998), when the USS BENFOLD won the prestigious Spokane Trophy for having the highest degree of combat readiness under the command of Commander Michael D. Abrashoff, the ship and her crew are making some serious innovation waves in our great Navy.
Though I haven't heard much about USS BENFOLD since 1998, the crew is making news with their highly successful ATHENA project. Hooray! Commander Rich LeBron and his BENFOLD crew are doing some amazing things. Featured on the CNO's Rapid Innovation Cell (CRIC), CDR LeBron explains what's been happening HERE. USS BENFOLD IS BACK !!
theATHENAproject is an innovation-fueled initiative founded on USS BENFOLD (DDG 65) to make the Navy better through powerful ideas, unique solutions, and intellectual courage.
