Just one more thing

I worked for the Navy while Jim Webb was SECNAV. He was one hell of a fine SECNAV. Shit got done, shit got done quick, and shit got done right. There was no bullshit and his influence pervaded the military down to each and every Captain, and therefore, to their commands.

I was proud to serve the country under him.

My ex, who was a totally SAT sailor and airman, even if a totally UNSAT husband, was selected as a member of the helicopter crew to take the SECNAV on his tours of naval bases out on the west coast where we were stationed. The ex thought he was one of damndest fine men he'd ever met.

'Nuff said again.
