ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views about the historical record-keeping of the U.S. Navy. The author suggested that as it is reviewed, allow for units to provide additional events for future postings. Additionally, provide each command with a wider distribution of the January issue of the journal "All Hands." All Hands should set an example and provide a short history story in each issue. Rating exams should also feature a section on naval history. Finally, start celebrating the Navy's October 13 birthday seriously.
