Who writes your stuff?

"In today's world, power must be ready, fast, flexible and operating forward. This requires warfighting Sailors who are highly trained, highly motivated and courageous — Sailors who are capable of meeting any challenge. It requires the best Sailors in the world, and we have them — the men and women of the United States Navy."

Quoted as original work by four different U.S. Navy Admirals in four different publications.  While an absolutely true statement - it's simply word fodder for Navy outreach to the civilian population.  And, a bit embarrassing for the four Admirals.  As they told us in grade school - do your own work.  And, if you can't do that, at least give credit where credit is due.

You are reminded - I Like The Cut of His Jib makes no claims of original thought.

Looks like admiral margaret klein also took credit for these words in an article she wrote or someone put her name to. I think she was the DoD Director of Ethics. Oops.
