"My initial reaction was to defend the captain, but conversations with a few former officers reminded me of an essential truth about leadership. Everyone who wears the uniform, but especially those entrusted to lead, has a special responsibility to uphold the very highest standards at all times. This is precisely because a single officer's actions will be seized upon by the service's harshest critics as a sign of an institution run amok." (01/05/11)
