Under secretary Modly- before he was forced to resign, said of Captain Crozier whom he fired from the USS Theodore Roosevelt
” It’s essential to love your crew, but it’s not sufficient.”.
Thank you Undersecretary. Goodbye.
Saint Augustine said “Love and do what you will.”
There it is.
Chain of Command meaning more than the Care of who you command. Better sailors die than Superiors be embarassed. Whistle Blowers are an endangered species.
My angel today whispered to me:
“If love is not enough, then enough is not enough.”
