CAPT. Eyer’s (USN, Retired) insight is recommended reading for Navy veterans and military professionals about failures throughout the organizational structure. It is not the “stand-down” and the bandaid as the Navy rushes in to fix this that is required. It should be long-term, lasting institutional changes. How many times will the services go through loss of life, damage and loss of equipment, scandals and loss of prestige? When politicians and bureaucrats at the highest levels wanted to adapt corporate practices, social experimentation, and project power with unclear objectives, the military culture suffers.

Why "notdonner" for my 'nom d 'guerre'? When we decided to add the dog, Comet. to the household, we didn't change his shelter name, but also couldn't remember it. Since it was the Christmas season, I thought of Santa's reindeer: not Dasher, not Dancer, nor Prancer... not Donner, etc. I don't know too many who are not dog-men. I have often eschewed politics in favor of talking about dogs, existentialism and everyday perspective as one of the dog-people. Not that I don't like cats, I do. But cats tolerate you, while dogs enjoy having you around. While a vice-president of the New York Mets (MLB) organization, and an attorney in New York share the same first and last name with me, I have no greater honor than having served my country as a U.S. Navy Senior Chief.
