"There's No Need to See Red"

January 2005
U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings;Jan2005, Vol. 131 Issue 1, p10
Conference Proceeding
This article presents the author's views on sailors. After reading Lieutenant Commander M. Crockett's opinion, the author must confess that he did sec red. His thoughts add to the already sweeping penchant toward the erosion of the traditions of the naval heritage, which is really beginning to scrape the barnacles off my keel, as it were. He presumes Commander Crockett to be a fine officer and caring leader by the tenor of his opinion. Commander Crockett stops short of castigating the motives of bygone sailors, but he clearly implies that those old salts never actually understood the full meaning of patriotic leadership.
