It is really quite something to start a Naval career reading blogs, and four short years later find oneself amongst the names of those you read. Admittedly it is intimidating, as well as an honor and distinction to be counted among them. I hope that you all will find my future posts interesting. Thank you to everyone at USNI for having me aboard.

    So they are finally giving you the opportunity to initiate your own columns. Good. Congratulations. I always found your comments insightful.

    This YN2 guy is pretty OK. We’ve been reading his responses and posts over at Phib’s place for quite a while.

    He has an unusual perspective – that of the enlisted person. He only shudda been an Airdale, just sayin.

    Congrats, H. Lucien!

  • SJBill, what’s so unusual about the perspective of an enlisted person? They do have them, you know.

    YN2, recommend you expedite your promotion to YN1 and apply for LDO. The wardroom needs you.
