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.

What do you think is one of the most overlooked skills in the Navy officer corps?
According to former CNO ADM Arleigh Burke, it's writing. I have to agree. I'm sure ADM Jim Stavridis could, as well. It's not merely about communication. More importantly, it's about thinking in a more disciplined way. When you put words on a sheet of paper, or a computer screen for that matter, you immediately begin to analyze what you've written. It's there for you to see. Your ideas matter. Write them down. Share then.
