ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on an article by C. Hooper, published in a previous issue, on the U.S. Navy's relationship with the community of San Francisco, California. According to the author, Hooper's conclusion that the Navy should continue to foster a relationship with this community is misguided. The author opines that the "anti-military San Francisco" stigma mentioned by Hooper in his article is exaggerated and misplaced.
