Ross Perot's 58 year old complaints about out-dated Navy Personnel System being acted upon

At this year's Sea Air Space Symposium, Chief of Naval Operations Jonathan Greenert said the Navy will begin tackling salient manning issues and modernizing the Navy's outdated personnel system (long regarded as the reason Ross Perot left the submarine force in 1957), maximizing career-long technical training, and moving away from year-group management.

All just in the nick of time.

Ross Perot was not a submariner. He served in USS Sigourney (DD-643) and USS Leyte (CVS-32) from 1953-1957.

Thanks for setting me straight. I had it in my head that he was a submariner.

We used to moor at the end of the dock at the Admiral Kidd club. I used to share beers with the head of BOOST who who I ran into later when he was N3A at NAVCENT. IT was such a small world in the mine battle force.

Yep, same guy.
