Command - Yours 24 hours a day

“Command is for the individual who loves responsibility, that is one of the challenges of leadership. It’s yours twenty-four hours a day. Command is an assignment that you were totally responsible for all the activities within that unit. There is an intrinsic reward; it is satisfying a need to be able to project a certain amount of order and discipline to yield results. That’s your reward, that you did it, to want bigger and bigger responsibilities. To seek it, but it was not ambition, but the challenge of taking on the toughest responsibilities.”

Admiral Paul David Miller

Despite firings, CNO sees no command crisis.

The Navy's record-setting pace of skipper firings this year has stirred debate inside the lifelines about why so many leaders are running amok, with some sacked early in their command for what appear to be character flaws like dishonesty, womanizing and alcohol abuse.
