In it for the long haul

When I was a young Ensign, I believed my Navy career was a sprint and we could make a difference in the Cryptologic Community in a few years. As I continued to serve, as a Lieutenant Commander, I realized it was a marathon and I had to pace myself to be in it for the long haul  And 30 years later, when I was a Captain approaching early retirement, I realized it is a relay race and I would have to hand off the baton to another group of junior officers to continue the run. Nice to see my former Shipmates carrying the baton so purposefully.  Thank you.

Captain Lambert,
As you indicated it is a never ending process to provide guidance and leadership to all individuals that that we have been associated with throughout our careers, and it is my hope that United States Sailors will continue the will and efforts that we have provided for them.

Very Respectfully,
