Many dimensions of the Naval profession

The naval profession has many dimensions, and they cannot be mastered all at one time.  First things must come first, and a fundamental knowledge of the sea and ships must precede all else.  I think it can be said, however, that any young man embarking on a naval officer's career today can rest assured of two fundamental points:  The Navy will be around in force for some time to come, and there will be plenty of challenges for his energies, not matter how great they are.
