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.

A leader lifts first and sets down last
A leader does not abide within his tent while his men bleed and die upon the fields. A leader does not dine while his men go hungry, nor sleep while they stand watch upon the wall. A leader does not command his men's loyalty through fear or purchase it with gold. A leader lifts first and sets down last. A leader does not require service of those he leads but provides it to them. He serves them, not them he.
